Wikimedia moving to Ubuntu Server

Wikmedia the company behind Wikipeida is moving over to Ubuntu Server. Ubuntu which is more well known for its Linux desktop offerings is actually very capable as a server as well. I have used Ubuntu 6.06 before with Centos in a production environments (in data centres and in the office) and it simply just "boring" i.e it didn't give me anything to be excited about such as down times and stuff. Just your regular old refrigerator-reliable stuff.

Oh yeah its repos are simply awesome and apt was simply a joy to work with too.

For those of you are still unsure of how good a "desktop" OS is as a server OS, this will surely be proof enough.

One for the Ubuntu crew!
