[In the news] Yahoo: The Linux Company


Not directly related to Fedora but interesting news ...


"Today, at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, Sven Dummer,
Director of Linux engineering at Yahoo!, explained that 75% of Yahooâs
Web sites and services run on Linux. The rest? It runs on FreeBSD"

"So what does Yahoo use? Well, Dummer explained, âYahoo has its own
Linux distribution, YLinux, targeted for out specific needs. Itâs based
on Red Hatâs Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Yes, thatâs right Yahoo is
another Red Hat customer helping Red Hat become a billion dollar company.

"Yahoo does, however, support its own supporting software package
system. Thatâs a relic, Dummer said, of its FreeBSD ancestry. This
system is used to package up new software and patches for both RHEL and
FreeBSD. At the same time, Yahoo does use the RPM Package Manager (RPM,
yes itâs a recursive acronym) for a lot of its internal software
