used by Cobalt, and has the best established retail channels in English speaking countries. If there is to be an impact on Red Hat's share of the Web, it may be the case that the volunteer Debian distribution is the most likely to gain in popularity and credibility, rather than the other commercial distributions. Dogfood Throughout most of the last year Apple has run www.apple.com in a load balanced configuration consisting of a mixture of Solaris servers and Apple's own MacOS X. Until recently most of the requests have been served from the Solaris machines, but www.apple.com now seems to be running exclusively Apple's own operating system. Solaris is still run on quite a number of Apple's other sites, however. Compaq has also switched to running its own operating system on its signature site. www.compaq.com has switched to Apache on Compaq Tru 64 Unix. Compaq has run NT and Microsoft-IIS since 1996, but may feel that it is important to make a statement about Tru 64 Unix, in the wake of its most visible reference site, amazon.com switching to Linux. Compaq seems to be using Tru 64/Apache as a reverse proxy in front of its existing deployment of NT machines, as the sites content is still produced using Microsoft technology. Another site being queried extensively at the moment is www.walmart.com. This initially looks like a Microsoft-IIS server behind a Linux based reverse proxy. However, there has been strong speculation that Walmart is actually running Apache natively with the server signature hand edited to say "Microsoft-IIS/5.0". This seems quite possible, as on one day the server signature was reported as Microsoft-IIS/4.0 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.6.6 OpenSSL/0.9.5, and the site also offers the JServSessionId cookie commonly used by Apache JServ.
