Heard on NPR this morning, found an article on
the New York Times site (free account required):

http://www.nytimes.com/cnet/CNET_0-1003-200-9576643.html

Excerpt:

    A Web site sponsored by Microsoft and Unisys as a way to steer big
    companies away from the Unix operating system is itself powered by
    Unix software.

    The site, dubbed "We Have The Way Out ," runs on Web servers powered
    by FreeBSD, an open-source version of Unix, along with the Unix-based
    Web server Apache, according to Netcraft, which tracks Web site
    information. Both pieces of software compete with Microsoft's Windows
    operating system. The Microsoft/Unisys site solicits names and contact
    information in exchange for research reports on data center trends.
