Poll: Do you deploy non-.NET apps to Windows servers?

Are you using Windows servers to dish out Web apps that are not based on .NET? Answer the question by taking this poll.

Windows servers are known to developers primarily for .NET Web applications. After all, if you were using PHP, Python, Ruby, or another similar language, you could just deploy to a Linux or BSD server and save on licensing, right? All the same, some organizations find value in Windows servers beyond the ability to run .NET applications, and use them for deploying Web apps written in non-.NET languages. Are you using Windows servers to dish out Web apps that are not based on .NET?

Tons of stuff on PHP, Java, ACF/Railo with Apache and Tomcat. Plus Trac and Subversion. Why Windows? I just know Windows so much better than *nix. Why Apache? Years ago I found that (on some apps) PHP did not get along with IIS very well. PHP, it seemed, was not really happy unless it was running on Apache and ideally *nix. And why *AMP? The sheer number and quality of off the shelf apps like MediaWiki, WordPress, Drupal, phpMyAdmin, SugarCRM, Gallery, phpbb, Magento, .etc. It is kinda like Rule 34; if it exists there is a *AMP app for it.
