Information  Microsoft uses linux
Hi, Recently Microsoft has heavily critisised linux for being unsecure etc...

I was just doing a trace on them, because i wondered who or if they have a host and it turns out that they do and the servers run on Linux!

Here is the proof

RE: Microsoft uses linux
I actually like Windows file permissions. You get (imo) much more control over the permissions of individual files.

RE: Microsoft uses linux
Strange, bing.com and www.bing.com are assigned to two different IP addresses.

www.bing.com = Linux Server
bing.com = Windows Server

RE: Microsoft uses linux
I would guess that the linux servers don't actually serve the content but rather link the internal windows servers to DNS.

Thats probably right Kevin, linux handles dns wayyy better than windows.
