General Development Windows might be a popular platform for running certain kinds of Web applications. But too many developers have been burnt by trying to deploy PHP applications on a Windows server. "If you banged on [a PHP application] too hard on Windows, IIS would crash, and nobody could tell why it died," Microsoft's Garrett Serack says. Microsoft is aiming to change that. In fact, while you weren't looking, they already made some improvements.

RTFA, they barely talked about IIS, more about the build process for windows, and the external libraries used.

What does that statement have to do with the question he asked? Nothing.

Yes, PHP runs happily on Apache for Windows. No need to use IIS, unless your company is a Microsoft partner/Microsoft certified org/Windows certified or whatever - then you're probably tied to IIS to keep the accreditation (guessing - correct me if I am wrong.)

Why was he asking questions about iis when it was only mentioned once in a two page article about improving the performance of php on windows?
