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. What's more, according to Netcraft's January 2012 Web Server Survey, Nginx over the past month has gained market share among all websites, whereas competitors Apache, Microsoft, and Google each lost share.

I have not ever used IIS of Microsoft but competing open source products. Out of them lighthttpd (for lightweight javascript testing) and nginx (for webdav) fit all my developer needs. For web-app development I use GlassFish.As a user, not as a developer I have a very bad idea about MS products, especially IIS-webdav and MS friendly administrators. It does not work with my Cyberduck and they say that they will not fix it because it is not broken, though a patch is posted by MS :-(
