I was just doing some checking on the presidential candidates:


For Obama, it says:

OS      Server 	
Linux   PWS/1.3.22

Looking at the web site source, it does not seem to be created by a generator. 
They do seem to be using php, css, and javascript, but a check of html validity 
gives 69 errors and 9 warnings for http://www.barackobama.com/issues/technology/

For McCain:
Linux   Microsoft-IIS/6.0  	

Looking at the web site source, the page seems to be done in asp.  It does not 
seem to be done by a generator.  The source seems to be a bit more sloppy than 

has 94 errors and 55 warnings.

As far as I know, PWS is Personal Web Server which is a Windows product.  IIS or 
course doesn't run on Linux.  Are they both running virtual Windows instances 
under Linux?

The links to the candidate websites are where they address technology issues.
