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.

LOL; that is a very nice idea; wouldn't it be great if the boxes were recycled ones? I don't really like my pizzas come in boxes, because they always taste like the box...
