Looking for the snappiest, fastest web server software available on this here internet? So were we. Valid, independent, non-synthetic benchmarks can be difficult to find. Of course, we all know that benchmarks don’t tell us everything we need to know about real-world performance; but what’s the fun of having choices if we can’t pick the best? Exactly. I decided to do a little research project of my own.

It's an interesting set of results, to say the least. I wouldn't mind seeing exactly what content was being served in the test. Like some of the others I'm very surprised by the IIS results.

The funny thing is I read the story totally expecting IIS to be reamed and the more I read the more impressed I was. I also wish there was a little more discussion about the types of content served though.

Very interesting. I shall link all those Linux fanboys who like to bash Windows to this article in the future. :-) More details about the tests would be appreciated though...
