Ever since the Gartner report came out in 2002, Microsoft’s web platform has steadily deteriorated in reputation. That report advised anyone using Internet Information Services in any version as a public-facing, production web server to immediately consider switching to Apache, the popular UNIX web server. Most of it was deserved, too, when you consider the inexcusable buffer overflows, what seems like ten security bulletins each week, worms that take over computers faster than they can be secured when you’re on the network, and so on.
