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

Possible Duplicates:
StackOverFlow Platform
The StackOverflow Source Code?
Install stackoverflow like software on my site
Is there any open source code we can get similar to stackoverflow?

The StackOverflow's site could be re-used in many different ways for different purposes.

Is it an open source project? Can I build my own instance of it?
