THIS IS NOT A PAGE TO LIST EVERY OPERATING SYSTEM IN THE WORLD.

This is a quick-reference sheet for the people running the server cluster that runs http://www.wikipedia.org/ and related sites. OSs/flavors not present in our cluster are therefore NOT LISTED.

Please do not add your favorite OS/distro/flavor or ask us why it has been so callously ignored. Thanks.
