Other than ActiveX, it's not a question I can answer in 2.0 seconds
or less. Whether ActiveX is wonderful is up to the beholder/developer.

But, let's be a little objective here. We're not comparing equal or
equivalent products here even if you just go by feature set. (See
prev. about CGI script handling.)

Personally I prefer Netscape in production. Wouldn't use IIS unless
the DLA actually directed me to (but they aren't.) But let's not
indict NT just because BSDi came up with a few misleading stats.
And if IIS is slower than something wouldn't really surprise me
in the least. It's not a secret that MS creates barely adequate
code and takes about three development iterations before they get
anything truly worth claiming is barely decent code.

Wonder why BSDi didn't mention or use Netscape... :-)

(Now, back to STREAMS development and hopefully my MS.)
