Wheeee!  Well, it's concise, I'll give it that much.  The survey's from
a base of 2000 servers with an 85% response rate.  My (yawn) version
is from 20000+ servers with a similar response rate. The results are broadly
similar too.  I'd argue that 2000 is not a big enough sample set.  Heh, if
you asked 200 *.EDU servers at 'random' you'd swear blind that the whole web
was built on top of Appletalk.

I guess if you only ever wanted to read one survey in your entire life then
this is as good as any.  I wish he's been a bit more thorough tho.
