Is the next President of the United States running Linux?

Earlier today I read a post about Ron Paul’s website. Interestingly, his site is less of a typical candidate site and more of a mashup of other sources of information about him. What a fantastic idea, and it shows additional transparency. That got me even more curious. What was the site developed on?

According to Netcraft, Ron Paul’s site was previously run on Microsoft IIS, but as of June 5th, it’s now on Apache!

So that got me wondering… what other candidates’ sites are running? Does this provide some insight into their overall candidacy?

It’s fascinating that the Dems are predominantly Open Source… except for Hillary Clinton, and the Republicans are predominantly Microsoft, except Ron Paul, Jim Gilmore, Rudy Giuliani, and Mitt Romney.
