David Gerard writes "Wikimedia, the organization that runs Wikipedia and associated sites, has moved its server infrastructure entirely to Ubuntu 8.04 from a hodge-podge of Ubuntu, Red Hat, and various Fedora versions. 400 servers were involved and the project has been going on for 2 years. (There's also a small amount of OpenSolaris on the backend. All open source!)"

Multiplayer: Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime promised us a September surprise [on the Wii],and I never saw a September surprise.
Kaplan: I don't know that he indicated which year.
Multiplayer: Oh, September 2008, I'll look for the surprise then.

Boy, this interview sure cleared that all up for me! Glad they got so in-depth with that question.

If an experiment works, something has gone wrong.

Working...
