Political Parties and Use of Open Source Web Tools

I noticed that the Conservative Party's eNewsletter was being sent by Mailman and got thinking about what Open Source platforms the various political parties are using. The breakdown is interesting:

* http://www.ndp.ca was running Apache on FreeBSD
* http://www.greenparty.ca was running Apache on Linux
* http://www.chp.ca/ was running Apache on unknown
* http://www.communist-party.ca was running Apache on FreeBSD
* http://www.marijuanaparty.com was running Apache on Linux
* http://www.cpcml.ca was running Apache on Linux
* http://www.pcparty.org/ was running Apache on FreeBSD

* http://www.liberal.ca was running Microsoft-IIS on Windows 2000
* http://www.conservative.ca was running Microsoft-IIS on Windows 2000
* http://www.blocquebecois.org/ was running HUMUS on Windows 2000
* http://www.canadianactionparty.ca/ was running Microsoft-IIS on NT4/Windows 98

I used links from [Elections Canada | http://www.elections.ca/content.asp?section=pol&document=index&dir=par&lang=e&textonly=false]
