Linden Lab (Second Life) chose Debian GNU / Linux because of its scalability and manageability
Linden Lab , the creators of the Second Life MMORPG  (wich grows subscription base 20% monthly), chose  Debian GNU / Linux because of its massive horizontal scalability (in March 2007 there were 2000 servers, expected to grow up to 10000 servers) and easy manageability, allowing a small IT staff.
They already opened the source of the game client , already ported to Linux.
I hope this draft could help times.debian.net
