Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to GreyGeek for this link. ]

The Kubuntu forum is down again. I first learned of this problem, "Service Unavailable", a month after I installed Kubuntu, in April: http://www.linuxtoday.com/news_story.php3?ltsn=2009-04-04-013-35-NW-CY

I was VERY surprised, in April, to learn that the Kubuntuform.net was hosted on a Windows 2003 server from the day it first appeared, in 2005. I was not surprised to see Netcraft statistics revealing that the server is rebooted, on average, every 14 days. I am beginning to wonder if these outages are caused by Win2k3 becoming owned by bot farms or just classic WinX slowdown or stability problems. Sooner or later the forum should begin eating its own dog food and switch to a Linux server. It is becoming an embarrassment.

What's that site running?
