While a large number of virtual machines today are running with Microsoft Windows, an increasing number have Linux installed. Linux has been adopted in many corporate data centers as a way to decrease license costs and decrease dependency on Microsoft as a single source for operating systems.

The slow and steady adoption of open-source solutions also has contributed to this shift.
