These large installations had previously been masking a general decline in Solaris share on the web, which is now down four percentage points over the last year. Additionally, the Network Solutions site was by far the largest Netscape-Enterprise installation in terms of numbers of hostnames, and one would expect that Netscape-Enterprise overall share will drop towards the 2-2.5% it has in the active sites analysis over the next few months. First .Net site spotted This months survey also found a site outside of microsoft.com offering Microsoft's .Net services. This is earlier than many people expected, however the site www.empowered.com is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and Microsoft itself has several sites using .Net, including uddi.microsoft.com. pre release of Windows .Net Server becoming quite widely deployed There are already between six and seven hundred sites running Microsoft-IIS/6.0 and Windows .Net Server, the operating system that will succeed Windows 2000 sometime next year. Windows .Net Server has had little media attention relative to .Net, and there has been no prior reporting of the availability of a pre release, but the sites running the Windows .Net pre-release are spread over several countries. Mark Shuttleworth set to venture into space Conversely, something that has been very widely reported is that Mark Shuttleworth, founder of the Thawte Certificate Authority is set to be the second space tourist.

Internet commerce steadily growing, recession or not Despite the failure of many internet based companies over the last

Verisign recently reported that 87% of SSL certificates expiring in the last quarter were renewed, while our own SSL Survey shows growth of around 50% over a year ago. The OECD recently produced a comparison of the growth in internet SSL servers with the most comparable Nasdaq industry indexes for a recent US Federal Reserve meeting, and this is shown below.
