Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

Possible Duplicates:
What are the architecture details of Stackoverflow?
What was Stack Overflow built with?

Does anyone know the architecture of Stack Overflow? I did a quick Google search but did not find any open source clones.
