Something is wrong here:

    Choosing which Web server software to use is often determined by
    the hardware and software platforms you have available. Many Unix
    users swear by Apache, while Windows NT users are forced to choose
    between Microsoft IIS, Netscape Suite Spot server, or others. While
    these NT products are respectable Web servers, they don't compare
    to Apache when it comes to scalability and flexibility.

What exactly does scalability mean?  This from the same magazine
that would have trouble benchmarking a webserver if it hit them in
the face and whose pretty point and click software is probably too
complicated for them?

(You know the real reason they couldn't use SPECweb?  They couldn't
figure it out.  Ok, ok... that isn't being fair.  Probably more like
they just making their own to make themself feel special and because
SPECweb sucks...)

Sigh.  Just shows how little you should trust anything written by
any magazine.
