Is the Stack Overflow source code available?

Is the script running Stack Overflow downloadable? Are there similar scripts available? I would like to know how Stack Overflow was structured; its function and design are pretty straightforward. I would like to know about approaches to achieving the site's functions.

PS: Is www.squarepolygon.com related to Stack Overflow? I thought that if it was related to Stack Overflow, it would have a link in the footer. I just want to confirm.

No, it's not open source or anything. They do offer a program where you can have your own SO-like site hosted, at a cost of course.
