Meaning computer? Single computer, or cluster? Check IBM's website. They

IIRC, it was something like 4000 simlutaneous Linux systems running on one
of their big machines (a 390?).  Pretty cool.

On the S/390, and it was 40,000+ virtual Linux systems.

And if you include clustering, http://www.google.com was powered
by 4,000 linux boxes, with plans to up that number to 6,000 (if
that has not already been done).

1. World's second largest vendor of Windows machines chooses NT4 for Web Site

World's second largest vendor of Windows machines chooses NT4 for Web
Site

What reason might Dell give for running www.dell.co.uk on NT4?

*  When we say "Upgrade!" you must do what we say, not do what we do.
*  We're still waiting for our order to be delivered.
*  It's not broke, and we don't need to fix it.
*  We're less of a target for attackers. There's no kudos in hacking *
*  anything more than 5 years old.
*  We've been evaluating Linux, and have not yet reached a decision.
*  It's just the front end machines. Everything else has been running
*  Windows 2003 for months. Honest!
*  The cobbler's children didn't have shoes, either.
*  That site doesn't see a lot of traffic. It just redirects to
www.euro.dell.com.
*  If you think that running NT4 doesn't do a lot for our product
advocacy, then you haven't seen what our evil competitor
www.computers.toshiba.co.uk runs.

The site www.computers.toshiba.co.uk is running
Netscape-Enterprise/6.0 on Solaris.
