Microsoft "Microsoft gained nearly five percent market share in the Web server market, however still lags well behind market leader Apache, research and security firm Netcraft said Friday. Nonetheless, it was the biggest one-month swing in the history of the industry. With more than 80 million Web sites on the Internet, Microsoft now claims a 25.2 percent share, up 4.7 percent from March. Apache still leads by a wide margin, however it was down close to 6 percent to 62.7 percent. Sun remained a distant third, down slightly to 2.36 percent."

When was the last time you ran an update that didn't ask to reboot?

Easy example, you have a cluster of three IIS servers running. Suddenly one hangs. Instead of reporting that it has hung, and then the cluster dropping it as it should until the administrator can restart it, IIS will just keep hanging until it completely makes your website unavailable. Yes, even if the other two are running fine, one of them will take it down. Kind of defeats one of the main reasons of a cluster, doesn't it?

Well that may be true, I'm going on your word alone here.

Before now, I've heard nothing but good things about IIS6.

Sounds like the cluster was misconfigured to me
