Yahoo uses PHP.

I'm always interested in the technologies that the big boys use, and why they use them. Michael Radwin tells why his company, Yahoo, decided to switch from proprietary technology to PHP, and why they chose PHP over other technologies.

Being the Java guy that I am, it's interesting to note that the only reason he states for not using Java is that you can't really use Java effectively without threads, and thread support on FreeBSD is not great.
