"Then I decided to look beyond Zappos to other on-line retailers. Here are the results for the top ten, as listed by InternetRetailer.com, with sales volume numbers in parentheses. Results for companyname.com are first, and other results for each company are summarized in text (Netcraft gives results in lowercase):

"1. Amazon.com Inc. ($14.8 billion): linux.
2. Staples Inc. ($5.6 billion): linux, through akamai.
3. Office Depot Inc. ($4.9 billion): the top result is linux for www.officedepot.com, but officedepot.com (without the dubs) is windows server 2003. Other foo.officedepot.com sites are a mix of the two and "unknown".
4. Dell Inc. ($4.2 billion): f5-big-ip, though l.dell.com (Dell laptops) is linux and a couple of foo.dell.com sites are "unknown".
5. HP Home & Home Office Store ($3.4 billion): hp-ux."
