Can you guess what this is?

It's a history of the IIs "Titanic", which is being slowly and
painfully sunk by the open source Apache web server.

In September, Microsoft's IIs web server again continued to lose
marketshare dramatically to the open source Apache web server.

http://news.netcraft.com/archives/20...er_survey.html

Can you guess when it started to really sink?

bzzzttttt!!!!! When Windows servers started to get hit by all those
viruses in mid-2002.

I guess people aren't so stupid after all,eh?

You would think that about the only virus family likely to have taken out
many Windows server configurations is MSBlast.

A shirt I saw at DefCon 2003 (which happened *just* before Blaster,
etc.):

front - Social Engineering
back - Because there is no patch for human stupidity

Of course this referred to Kevin Mitnick's asking people for
passwords, but it's still kinda funny in this context too...

You have a strange idea of what "dramatical ly" means. Apache now has
roughly the same market share it had 3 years ago. It had gone down quite a
bit in the last three years and has only recently been able to recover.

Microsoft, on the other hand, is still quite a bit higher than it was 3
years ago.

What are you talking about? Code-Red and Nimda were in 2001, not mid-2002.

In fact, there were no new viruses or worms that effected IIS in all of
2002. The problem is that at this point, what we're seeing is the sway of
a few large hosting companies choices, not a mass exodus.

I don't know, you seem to be doing a good job. Not one claim you made in

Apache has more of the market now than ever before.

It has dropped from its high, though - from 35% to 23.75%.

Apache never lost a third of its market share like that.

Erik, you should cut your losses with this one. IIS is the worst server
application ever. The marketplace is finally figuring this one out.
Your continuous advocacy for IIS is making it even more difficult for
you to appear credible.

I'm not saying what is better. But check your math...

35% to 23.75% is only 11.25%, which is far from a third (1/3, or 33%). It
is more like a third of a third, or 1/9th

sorry,
i just noticed I misread that. I misinterprested your statement as a third
of "the" market share, not a third of "their" market share.
