I'd think they'd run it on a serverfarm the size of at least a Class C network in IPv4 running Windows Server 2003 machines each with 16GB (at least) of RAM
I run Slackware myself, have done so for 10 years or so - mostly because my computer is so old - but also because I like the fact that it's easy to move my system from disk to disk and to do disaster recoveries... I mostly operate from a laptop so loads of stuff can happen!
