+ - Microsoft Relying on Linux?

FolderShare.com, which is a Windows Live service is running on Linux with PHP for Apache. The filesharing/backup site was acquired by Microsoft a few years ago and on up until now, Microsoft has seen fit to leave it running on Linux. It's also interesting to see that quite a few of Microsoft's most popular sites are still running Windows 2000 on IIS 5.0 (who wanted businesses to upgrade?) and most of Microsoft's sites are using the F5 Big IP load balancer which recently switched over to Linux from BSD. You gotta love Microsoft for their patriotism to Windows :)"
