Thanks for the heads up Andrew, that's an interesting piece of news and
quite a coup for Ubuntu.

Is this going to be the largest deployment of the server edition of Ubuntu
to date, does anyone know? I'm presuming it's the most high-profile? The
feedback gained from such a large installation should prove invaluable to
the project and will benefit us all. Great stuff!
