I'd agree with that. There's also a lot that goes with the server OS choice. A lot of It organizations are using active directory for access control and microsoft admin tools. So moving away from MS products isn't easy.

"Already, 63% of you say you'll run Windows 8 on at least 50% of your servers."

Wow, that is really amazing. Have these people heard of Linux? It is more reliable and way less expensive. I think this has to do with the skill base (i.e. tons of Windows admins everywhere) vs. the technology/business case.
