What's that pol running? "For what it's worth, the Republican National Committee is running Microsoft IIS on Windows 2000, while the Democratic National Committee is running Apache on Linux. As of this writing, November 5, 2003, the RNC has an uptime of 4.26 days (maximum of 39.04) and a 90-day moving average of 16.91. The DNC has an uptime of 445.02 days (also the maximum) and a 90-day moving average of 395.38 days." Also broken down by individual campaigns.

I always knew those Democrats didn't have enough patriotic spirit to support American products, instead opting for that shady, european, socialist stuff.

Howard Dean - Apache on FreeBSD - can you say even MORE free than Linux? How fitting.

Never thought about that before, but the "you get what you pay for" adage doesn't apply to MS versus Linux, at least in the server space.

I am probably the last one to have that thought. Go me.

Great. Still doesn't change the fact that the Democrats have yet to put together a political machine as powerful as the Republicans. Secret tip, DNC: Pull your organization together and put out a coherent message.

Sorry for the hijack.
