Over last 12 years I have worked with number of service providers and
delivered professional services to number of large enterprise

I have not seen any enterprise customer without some sort of *nix
deployment. Even M$ was running Linux/BSD based mail and DNS servers a
few years back. They probably have diisabled OS fingerprinting.

The discussion should be if there any big enterprise customer in any
segment who is *nix free.
