Do you know that Google's social networking web site Orkut.com is powered by Microsoft technology? We just learnt that Orkut is powered by its rival company's ASP.NET technology. All the page URLs of Orkut ends with the extension .aspx, which is file extension of Microsoft ASP.NET web pages.
Here are the few web page URLs of Orkut
- Home page: http://www.orkut.com/Home.aspx

Orkut was developed independently by Orkut Büyükkökten, a Turkish software engineer working at Google. It's surprising to see that Google employees are fond of Microsoft Technologies.
