Look at this post recently published on TechCrunch – It is ugly standard 404 error message, but what is interesting is the server line which shows nginx 0.5.32

I have checked and indeed images served from assets.hulu.com have nginx server in response header.

This would be the first site of this (planned) scale to run Nginx. So far even though Nginx was used by many major companies in Russia, the rest of the world preferred lighttpd often due to better documentation and more active development community.
