Looks like 2006 will be "the year of the Microsoft web server", with
Apache seeing a gradual decrease in its market percentage, while
Microsoft has seen a steady increase.
At October 2006 Apache held about 60% of the market (dropping 10% on
the start of the year), with Microsoft at about 30% (up almost 15% on
the start of the year).
Woe to him that willfully innovates, while ignorant of the constant.
Re: 2006 the year of the Microsoft web server?
It's not even a trend. It's just a case of parked domains being shifted
by some big providers, e.g.:
The real story is that a good percentage of hosted domains are
essentially insignificant. There is no way in hell I would host a
significant domain on a shitty IIS server. And since "popularity" isn't
a technical feature anyway, who really cares?
