Seen on reddit: What large websites are running on

[ #34589 ]
Seen on programming.reddit.com:
What nine of the world’s largest websites are running on http://royal.pingdom.com/?p=173.
Perl has a strong showing. However the selection of sites has been debated. http://programming.reddit.com/info/2vbag/comments
The data for the table was scraped from http://highscalability.com/

  • What a bizarre selection of sites. This isn't even close to the 9 largest sites. Where's Yahoo, eBay, Google, Microsoft, AOL, Amazon, MapQuest? Those sites clobber the ones on this list. Yes, Yahoo owns Flickr, and Google own YouTube, but the traffic doesn't compare.
    • The sites were selected based on articles on http://highscalability.com/ [highscalability.com] not because they actually represented "top tier" websites despite what the article claims.

      That said though, nobody points out how well represented Perl is in this group :)
