Software development has been popular, as is all kinds of engineering
designs. At least I know of entreprise software that uses Oracle/LinTel
(you don't think Oracle and IBM put their flagship products on Linux for

The Chinese government has banned Windows >2k in government servers and
made Linux the platform of choice; but Win whatever is still on
desktops, and critical backends still run on proprietary OS'. If the
U.S. government is running critical backends on proprietary OS', I doubt
if other gov's would do otherwise.
