Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If I want to have a website that behaves just like SO but is populated by users asking questions about cars (or waffles or ponies), can I buy or license the platform?

What's available with regard to SAS hosted or frameworks that I can run on my own hardware?

The hosted on my own server is the option you will be looking for.

The Stack Overflow Knowledge Exchange Platform
Designed by Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky, Stack Overflow has rapidly 
become the best place for programmers to get answers to technical questions. 
Now there's a way to get the same kind of site for your audience.

My employer has blocked that, they say " is categorized as Spam Email URLs" .. could jeff have been spamming this? – belgariontheking Aug 27 '09 at 13:42
Highly doubtful. As far as I am aware there has been no advertising for this apart from the mention here and on the podcast. – BinaryMisfit Aug 27 '09 at 14:00
