StackOverflow is developed with ASP.NET MVC, C# 3.5 and saves data into SQL Server 2008.

And no, it's not some OpenSource wiki engine, not yet.

It's also unlikely to be released as Open Source in the medium term, as it is available as a service from FogCreek as the StackExchange product –  Rowland Shaw Feb 15 '10 at 13:12

No, it's specifically developed.
