Hi Ivan. Eighth paragraph from the top, second from the bottom:


    The survey was conducted among 100 corporate technology
    departments. It found that 19 were using Linux in low-end servers,
    14 to support databases and 11 had deployed it on mainframe
    computers. Twelve per cent had rolled out Linux on the desktop.
    
               ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
