The mind ... boggles. I would never have believed that Microsoft would be running an array of 10,000 Linux machines.

From the standpoint of Skype functionality and reliability this is probably a good thing (the Supernode methodology was really a way for Skype to keep infrastructure costs down, I think.) Still, I'm left wondering why Microsoft chose to run a Linux farm rather than Windows.

I wonder what 10,000 licenses of Windows Server would cost an organization that isn't Microsoft. I love using Linux for when I need to quickly set up specific purpose servers. Much less headaches than dealing with OS licensing.
I don't think Windows server can be a good choice, cos, they just freeze up time to time, or say, quite regularly indeed.
