网络有多大?最近,Google官方BLOG发表了We knew the web was big…这篇文章,主动提到网络究竟有多大这个问题。

We’ve known it for a long time: the web is big. The first Google index in 1998 already had 26 million pages, and by 2000 the Google index reached the one billion mark. Over the last eight years, we’ve seen a lot of big numbers about how much content is really out there. Recently, even our search engineers stopped in awe about just how big the web is these days — when our systems that process links on the web to find new content hit a milestone: 1 trillion (as in 1,000,000,000,000) unique URLs on the web at once!

说完google说微软,根据Microsoft pledges love and money to open source这篇报导所言,长久以来,将开源码自由软件视为最大威胁的微软,如今竟一反常态地转而投入开源码的行列。
After years of hostility towards Free Software Foundation (FSF) licensing (here and here) Microsoft has announced the first in a series of PHP patches – and it’s using an FSF license.
从这篇报导看来,微软之所以转而投入PHP并采用Free Software Foundation (FSF) licensing,着眼点应该在于长期稳居服务器市场霸主地位的Apache HTTP Web Server
