here can I find somewhat reliable indications of server market shares, without having to fork out $$$$$ for IDC or Gartner reports?

I have considered the W3 statistics, net applications etc, and these are not what I would consider reliable.

Is there anything more, that is free?

Oddly enough the free stuff isn't as good as the paid stuff, although be aware that even the paid stuff from Gartner/IDC isn't fully independant and often skew their stats in the direction of one manufacturer or another.

Was there a particular stat/segment you were most interested in and for what period?
