I wonder if they include all of the sites hosted behind corporate firewalls.

gzt: I vividly remember on Windows 95 getting IIS going and finding it was limited to serving 10 computers or some other silly limitation. Installing apache on 9x was a genuine OMG moment.


Are you seriously saying your dislike for IIS is because of its performance on Windows 95? You haven't looked at it since then?

It was not my intention to express any dislike for IIS. Back then I assumed my platform was unable to handle anything more. The ability to run the same webserver software as the largest sites in the world (OMG!) on that platform was something totally unexpected. Clearly I'm not going to win any clear communication prizes today : ).

Windows 95 was a desktop OS and shouldn't of had IIS, they gave it a cut down version for web developer convenience during development not to actually host iirc. NT 3 was out before 95 in 1993.

That's correct I think. Similar limitations apply to the IIS available for non-server platforms today also. It's kind of a non-issue and a lot has changed since then. Cheap hosting in any flavor for one.
