    US government isnt so bad

    Well I just wanted to see what the government was running their websites on, and I was pleasantly surprised.

    The site www.whitehouse.gov is running unknown on Linux.
    The site www.fbi.gov is running Netscape-Enterprise/4.1 on Linux

    and my biggest surprise:

    The site www.army.mil is running WebSTAR/4.2 ID/70636 on MacOS

    Well thats just the high exposure web servers. At that level, the govt/mil tend to overlook M$ for some real security.


    Of course, with contracts and all, most every other govt/mil server is running some form of IIS




    Guess noone is perfect
