FreeBSD The second release candidate of FreeBSD 6.2 has been released. "All problems we felt needed to be addressed before 6.2 could be released have been taken care of. Unless further testing turns up something new RC2, which is available now for dowloading, will be the last of the Release Candidates and 6.2-RELEASE should be ready in about 2 weeks."

The comment I'm replying to is curiously omitting to mention that, since Oracle doesn't support FreeBSD, it's hardly a surprise that Yahoo deploys Oracle on a different OS - they're simply forced to.

However, I'm not aware of any commercial constraints that would prevent Yahoo from choosing a different OS for their fast-growing web infrastructure. But, again, it looks like this is not the case:

This is hardly a surprise either, since worldwide FreeBSD is running many more websites than any Linux distro - 2.5 million against RedHat's 1.6 million, were the numbers two years ago.
