*If* you want to compete with IIS (and who doesn't? :-), you 
might want a
prebuilt Win32 binary with a selection of modules to try to 
match IIS (including
the ASP stuff). One cannot be quite as certain that folks at an 
Win32 shop
will have all the tools (or knowledge) on how to build a "full 
featured" Apache.

Of course, that type of shop will probably want to but support 
too, so it might
be a moot point.
