Submission + - Wikipedia Simplifies by Going All-Ubuntu Linux ( 2

CWmike writes: "Since the free, online Wikipedia user-created encyclopedia began in 2001, the Linux-based IT infrastructure behind it has been expanded and lassoed together to keep up with the demands of the popular Web site. Soon, that problem will be gone. In a few months, Wikipedia will finish a major transformation by moving from a combination of versions of Red Hat products to Ubuntu Linux Version 8.04 on all 400 of its servers. Brion Vibber, CTO of the San Francisco-based Wikimedia Foundation Inc., said the transition was very hopeful. "We can run the same combination everywhere, and it does the same thing" and runs the same software, Vibber said. "Everything is a million times easier.""
