Candidates by Server?

Have you ever wondered if Open Source software could be a factor in the success or failure of a political candidate?

Douglas Karr has an interesting political analysis on his blog … Which candidates are running which servers.

Here’s a quick breakdown …

  • Democrats: 90% are running open source operating systems (Mostly Linux, however Barak Obama is running FreeBSD, but that is just fine with me) . Hillary Clinton being the only democrat to be running Microsoft.
  • Republicans: 69% are running Windows Server 2003.

Very interesting analysis … and it pretty much breaks down the way I would expect, and hope, it would.
