While I was browsing Netcraft for some web statistics regarding Apache and IIS usage, I stumble upon their section “Web Server Search: What’s the site running?” This section gives statistics about specific domains and the web server they are using. Yahoo.com is a consistent FreeBSD on their servers. Apple.com which is known for OSX as based in Unix is not surprising to see MacOSX and Linux running on their servers. The most surprising part is when I looked for Microsoft.com statistics and found out that they are running Linux on some of their web services. The irony is that Microsoft is attacking Linux as an insecure OS which can be found on their Get The Facts campaign. It’s a shame that after all their campaign against Linux, they still trust their web services to the competition. Below is the screenshot which was taken from Netcraft’s statistic page.
