Eating your own dogfood

A quick look on netcraft reveals that Microsoft is running Windows 2008 / IIS 7 on their main webservers. I must say, they must have a great deal of confidence in the thing... microsoft.com is a *very* loaded website, and tends to be a big target for various attacks.

Microsoft Corp One Microsoft Way Redmond WA US 98052 207.46.19.190 Windows Server 2008 Microsoft-IIS/7.0 9-Jan-2008

Even the ones marked "Unknown" are Windows 2008 / IIS 7. A simple telnet / netcat on port 80 and a GET / HTTP/1.0 will reveal that.

Good one! Windows Server System has come long way from NT days.

Windows Server is a victim of bad press and general hatred toward Microsoft.Apart from that Windows Server and related products like IIS,SQL Server,Exchange are rock solid product.

Just finished reviewing Windows Server 2008 RC1.I must admit this is a real server.
