Open Source wins the 2000 election hands down. Of 14 possible candidates, 11 are running some form of the Apache web server. Only 2 run non-Unix operating systems; both Liz Dole's and Dan Quayle's run Windows (hmm, why am I not surprised at these two).

According to Netcraft's "What's that site running?" service, http://www.netcraft.com/cgi-bin/Survey/whats - next year's presidential hopefuls are running the following (alphabetically).
