Internet & Networking Microsoft continues to gain share in the web server market, chipping away at Apache's commanding lead. The number of hostnames on Windows servers grew by 4.5 million, giving Microsoft 29.7% market share, a gain of 4.25% for the month. Apache had a decline of 429K hostnames, and loses 3.5% to 61.25%. Apache's lead over Microsoft, which stood at 48.2% in March, has been narrowed to 31.5%, a shift of 16.7% in just three months.

Simple. A lot of IIS-based sites wind up using pages with heavy amounts of VBScript and/or IE-specific HTML that breaks heavily on anything other than IE. I encounter far too many such sites even today, and since IE today is essentially Windows only, it isn't unreasonable to say you're precluding access to non-MS platforms by going such a route.
