Internet & Networking With financial backing from the likes of Michael Dell and other venture capitalists, open source upstart Nginx has edged out Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Server) to hold the title of second-most widely used Web server among all active websites.

Wow. Good to hear. I've been mulling over the idea of switching over some parts of my site(s) to be handled by nginx. Pity that it's not more widely supported out of the box by most open source CMS packages. And pity that nginx isn't available on more budget hosts as an option to make more out of limited resources.
