+ - IIS overtakes Apache among Fortune 1000 sites

Submitted by El Lobo
El Lobo (994537) writes "If you think back a few years to IIS 5.0, the future for Microsoft's web server looked rather bleak. With IIS 6.0, Microsoft made "locked down" mode settings the default at installation, which helped minimize security problems, and helped IIS 6.0 recapture a major part of trust that IIS 5.0 lost. No major security disasters have been reported since the release of IIS 6.0. Now, Microsoft is looking to consolidate IIS 7.0's position as a secure and robust web server.

A recent market survey indicated that Microsoft's IIS has a 31.13 percent market share, which places it in second position behind the open source Apache Web Server. Another survey by Port80 Software that takes Fortune 1000 companies into consideration reports that IIS has overtaken Apache among Fortune 1000 sites."
It's funny.  Laugh.

From TFA, 'Leon Lederman ... used a pocket knife, tape, and items on anyone's grocery list to confirm that interactions involving the weak force do now show perfect mirror symmetry, or parity, as scientists had long assumed.'"

Too much is not enough.
