interesting to see that the open source server still has the lions share of the webserver market.
you would think that with people's love of ms they would actually use ms iis/sqlserver.... instead of betraying thier corporate dedication to crappy software.

IIS Kookiness

by BFilmFan In reply to you mean

Most of the sites that my current client is using are for internal and extra-net clients only, so they do us IIS quite a bit.

The external web-page is just pretty pictures and flowery language.

Could it be that most of the 20.88% IIS share exists because the application dictates its use?

In a prior life, I had a Linux server that averaged well over 10K hits per day, with peaks over 100k. Don't you know it went down every time the power went out longer than the UPS batteries lasted. . .

As many of you know, however, outside of the geek world, it is much harder to find good Linux expertise.

now linux is far more stable and reliable.
there is even support for ups.
( which has improved drastically in the last year )

people forget, linux is a far younger os than windows. it has the benefit of being clone of unix, and posix compliant, but it is very much a work in progress, and always will be.
