An interesting find from the other day.

I noticed that Microsoft have an APT package repository and saw this at the root index: Nginx default install page.

It seems that they are using Debian and Nginx to host their Linux package repository! I would have expected them to use IIS to make a point that Windows and Linux can coexist and support each other happily. Perhaps I should email them to get on that! *hehe*

Or it is Windows but it tells you it's Debian. This is sometimes done to mislead hackers.

But yeah, most likely it is indeed Debian.
