GNU/Linux is Kicking Ass At Netcraft

This is how hosting providers monitored by Netcraft see the operating system universe. The majority use GNU/Linux when it counts, not just because someone offers them that other OS. GNU/Linux offers great price/performance/reliability. You can get that kind of performance on your desktop too from Debian.

    Ahhhhh Linux….even M$ uses Linux when it is required.

    Seems M$ could not manage their Skype acquisition appropriately, so it built grsec’ed Linux super-nodes to handle the work.

    Also, M$ has employed Akamai’s Linux-based servers to protect its Microsoft.com web site and reduce the site’s vulnerability to viruses, worms and denial of service attacks. M$ changed the DNS of its web site so that requests for pages are no longer handled by M$ own network, but instead by the Akamai cache servers — which consists of 15,000 Linux-based servers spread around the globe.

    So…. running good ol’ telnet we find:
    telnet http://www.microsoft.com http
    Trying 65.55.57.27…
    Connected to lb1.www.ms.akadns.net.

    Doh!
