Apart from Komplex, which runs Linux, the Top 10 places were almost evenly split between FreeBSD and Windows, with five of the top 10 hosting company sites running FreeBSD, and four on Windows.

Two new measurement points were added this month, at Cee-Kay in Amsterdam and Hostway in Sydney. We also removed the measurement point at Rackspace in San Antonio.
