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