MS Bashing aside the following article is quite informative
In fact the http://www.microsoft.com/backstage/ section of microsoft.com can
be quite interesting - I know it's all NT stuff but it's still interesting
to read the HOWTO on running the 4th largest web site on the planet.
(Yes I know you said you were not interested Anton but :) ... it's the 4th
largest - to quote ...
"Around 5 million visitors a day, 500,000 different pages on the site (many
available in 30 languages), traffic that doubles every nine months or so,
and more than 1,000 people around the world who publish on the site on an
almost continuous basis. It is the fourth-largest Internet site (per Media
Metrix), and easily the largest corporate site.".
