Microsoft Is Using Linux To Protect Its Own Web Site.

"Microsoft has made a big deal out of asserting that Linux is not fit for the enterprise. But Microsoft itself is using Linux to help protect its servers against denial-of-service attacks."

Seems sensible.

for the link. This urban myth - that Microsoft is running on Linux - was doing the rounds earlier this week, but a quick look at the facts soon clears the air.

I have read an article that suggests that Microsoft is paying $421 million to fight off Linux. Its a lot of money to waste.

$421 million is nothing compared to the amounts that M$ stand to loose should a mass exodus to Linux come about.
