    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.

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

    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.

    Hey Dave, I've been wondering for a while what the commands in your signature do. Has something to do with UBB?
    Is searches for any unix process running with the handle 'ubb' and kills them

    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.

    Test servers - Linux (Redhat) (Mandrake) , off the Multiple OC48's

Currently all of Microsoft's Internet properties run on Windows 2000 Datacenter version. Hotmail is still utilizing 20% less resources than when it was on FreeBSD even with the continued growth of MSN.
    Heres what TheRegister had to say on this about a year ago.
    Microsoft admits it still hasn't upgraded its Hotmail system to Windows, almost four years after embarking on the task, and fifteen months after the first load balancing machines began to be shifted to Windows 2000 from FreeBSD.

    Not sure what the situation now is.

    I refer you to my previous post on this topic:

    Windows 2000 was not released in 2000... Surely this supersedes your argument.
