ASP.NET and IIS Serve More Fortune 1000 Sites than Any Other Web Server Technologies...

Seems that Microsoft IIS has more than 50% of market share of the Fortune 1000 companies web servers. There are customers I talk to who claim that using windows on DMZ servers requires a lot more effort for updating on security patches. I don't agree - I believe there is no such thing as an effortless infrastructure. You anyway have to maintain it and you have to look after your servers regularly. If you do a proper architecture (load-balanced, clustered) and assign the needed resource to review, test and deploy patches, then the decision of which operating system to use becomes neglible.

I remember there was once a review on how many Websites that provide TLS (formerly known as SSL) are hosted on which platform. I remember IIS being a leader there, too.

Sony is evil

I just so agree with Todd:

Bad Company of the Year Award!:The company that I am putting at the top of my list is a 4 letter word so foul, that it has been banned from my home. I have asked my wife who is Japanese to refrain from buying any of their products for the next 5 years. The Bad company of the year is no other than SONY…
Sony is just a big no-buy company. My girlfriend knows why Sony is evil and we both will rather buy a more expensive or less appealing product from a competitor. "Sony is evil" has only 726 hits on Google, but this will increase.

Edit: More about the damage Sony does:

Requegesis is the critical interpretation of requirements. It’s at the same time an art and methodical approach to understand history, origin, background (also cultural), criticality and validity of requirements. The goal of requegesis is to find the best functional response to requirements while taking liberty in their interpretation.

The word “requegesis” itself is a portmanteau - a linguistic blend - of the two words “requirement” and “exegesis”. The first part of the word “requ” is used in the traditional sense of the "singular documented physical and functional need that a particular design, product or process must be able to perform". The second part of the word exegesis (from the greek “to lead out”) is the “critical explanation or interpretation of a text, particularly a religious text. “

I think exegesis with the connotation of being used for religious texts underlines the way some requirements being treated as sacrosanct rather than critically interpreted in the cu…
