    They use HP unix, solaris.

    Test servers - Linux (Redhat) (Mandrake) , off the Multiple OC48's
    Hotmail ran on FreeBSD even after MS bought it. It has since switched to Win2000 as Wayne said.

      They were using FreeBSD on parts of Hotmail after Windows 2000 was released as it couldn't handle the load (or so I read).

      They have probably transferred over now, but its interesting to note that Windows 2000 isn't as scalable as FreeBSD.

          Hey Dave, I've been wondering for a while what the commands in your signature do. Has something to do with UBB?

              From the article:
              A check with Netcraft shows that Hotmail's front edge servers do indeed run Windows 2000, so Microsoft can faithfully claim that the "web site runs Windows", as it did yesterday. But the infrastructure is still stored on BSD kit. How much we're not sure, but when we receive hard numbers, we'll tell you.

                Lol... this is definetly a case where the thread's subject has skewed very far from the original intention.

                        No, actually you posted
                        They dont use freeBSD, hotmail has always been on NT.
                        which quite clearly indicates that you don't "know" that they ran it on FreeBSD.
