Submission + - BBC creates 'Perl on Rails' 2

Bogtha writes: Long-time users of Perl for their public websites, and having successfully used Ruby on Rails for internal websites, the BBC have fused the two by creating a 'Perl on Rails' that has the advantages of rapid development that Rails brings, while performing well enough to be used for the Beeb's high-traffic public websites. This is already powering one of their websites, and is set to be used in the controversial iPlayer project as well.

    So what OS is this run off? Presumably MS Win XP?

    Isn't it weird how their headers say Red Hat and Apache 2 but their directors say there are only 200 linux users in the UK [that's hyperbole] ... everyone who uses that site is a linux user.
