Customers demands Linux over Windows

I read (swedish) at the Swedish computer newspaper Computer Sweden that OMX customers demands that their software runs on Linux. OMX develops stock and other exchange market place software. They also own the Nordic stock exchange.

OMX next generation of system will be based on Linux. OMX says:
"Our customers most often want to use Linux. ... Among the actors at the finance market who have selected new technical platform, very few have selected Windows." (my translation)

OMX software sections revenue is about 200 million dollars.

When will Ubuntu be their distribution of chose?

It seams that Linux is becoming more and more the "wave of the future" and it seems like more people are moving to it because it's getting easier to use as you can see with Ubuntu and other distro's
