England's Royal Family dumps Linux and goes to Windows

1 post in this topic

Two years ago the Queen of England became an unlikely icon for the Linux revolution when her webmaster replaced Solaris as the platform for the Royal Family's site, citing the better price/performance of the Dell/Linux platform over the previous incumbent, Sun/Solaris. The open source community celebrated and speculated on when the Apache web server might receive the "By Royal Appointment" moniker. This week the site has changed platforms again, this time to Microsoft-IIS.

Buckingham Palace told Netcraft that the site's new designers were responsible for the decision to change platforms. The Palace have thoughtfully provided a contact information page for people with questions about the site, as there is sure to be a lot of interest in the change at what has been an icon of Linux's progress into the establishment and a Red Hat reference site.
