They didn't do it, and won't be able to for some time - Linux just can't scale on larger (say 64 cores and more) server.

Pardon? Linux has been doing it for years. Where have you been living? 64 cores(?!) (processors) is small-fry and there is that inevitable word that people expect to just say or write without quantifying it - scale. You've got to laugh.
