Hotmail ran on Linux for a very long time.

Skype may yet transition to Windows servers, but MS are hardly going to insist they make it their first and only priority. That would be insane.

I think you mean FreeBSD.

Hotmail never ran on Linux, it was all FreeBSD.

I think rdl made that point well when he posted 4 hours before you did. You are both correct- my memory was faulty. But the main point about Hotmail running on a non-MS OS still stands.
