    "NEW YORK (Reuters) - International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) reclaimed the top market share spot among computer server companies worldwide during the second quarter, pushing Hewlett-Packard Co. (NYSE:HPQ) back into second place, according to market research firm IDC...IBM, which makes everything from computers based on Intel Corp. (Nasdaq:INTC) microprocessors to giant mainframe systems that use proprietary semiconductor technology, had 30.4 percent of global server systems revenue during the quarter. HP, which held the No. 1 spot in the first quarter, had 27.7 percent of total revenues...
    - The overall server market amounted to $10.62 billion in revenues, a slight increase from $10.60 billion a year earlier. IDC said Sun Microsystems Inc.'s (Nasdaq:SUNW) share of the market increased to 13.5 percent, while Dell Inc.'s (Nasdaq:DELL - news) share of the total market decreased slightly to 9.2 percent in the second quarter...
    - IBM attributed its share gains to strength in sales of computers that run the popular Unix operating system..."
