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, - next year's presidential hopefuls are running the following (alphabetically).

Bill Bradley Apache/1.3.3 (Unix) FrontPage/ PHP/3.0.5 on Solaris

Pat Buchanan Apache/1.2.5 on FreeBSD

Harry Browne Apache/1.2.5 FrontPage/3.0.4 on BSD/OS

George W. Bush Apache/1.2.3 on BSD/OS

Elizabeth Dole Microsoft-IIS/4.0 on NT4 or Windows 98

Steve Forbes Netscape-Enterprise/3.6 on Solaris

Al Gore Apache/1.2.0 Ben-SSL/1.8 on Linux

John Kasich Apache/1.1.3 on Linux

Allen Keys Apache/1.3.1 (Unix) FrontPage/ on Solaris

Russell A. Lacasse (who??) Apache/1.3a1 on BSD/OS

John McCain Rapidsite/Apa-1.3.4 FrontPage on IRIX

Bob Smith Apache/1.3.0 (Unix) FrontPage/3.0.4 on Linux

Dan Quayle Microsoft-IIS/4.0 on NT4 or Windows 98

And of course -

Jesse "The Body" Ventura Apache/1.2.6 FrontPage/3.0.4 on Linux
