MS Anti Unix site runs on FreeBSD

This has got to be one of the more amusing pieces of news that I have stumbled upon lately. It seems that Microsoft and Unisys have created what some would call an "Anti Unix" site and placed it on the web here . Upon closer inspection it became quite clear that the site was running off a FreeBSD box with *nix Frontpage extensions. You really have to wonder whether or not any of MS' corporate goons saw any of this coming...

Note: To MS' credit it does appear that the site actually belongs to Unisys - it also appears that since they transferred the site back to IIS (yes this has been confirmed) it has become "unavailable". I think the lesson here is UniSys may want to learn how to actually configure Windows correctly before attempting to peddle Datacenter boxes.
