Subject Re: Microsoft Windows NT Server Migration Lab (fwd)
Date Fri, 23 Oct 1998 03:18:39 GMT

I just had a chance to look at the document, particularly
the migration options... it would be interesting to take
the comparison of how to set various options in IIS4 and
switch the sense of the comparison, for example:

Feature        Apache  IIS 4.0
-------        ------  -------
UserDir          Yes      No    Apache allows server administrators
                                to designate a default directory for
                                ISP user HTTP directories.
AddDescription   Yes      No    Apache allows users to designate a
                                file description for display during
                                directory browsing.

I also noted that the IIS migration docs simply ignore any
features that Apache has, but IIS lacks... shouldn't suprise
me, I guess.

from IIS to Apache on Unix -- not that it's a hard topic to cover. ;)
I found the "sample text" they provide (for mission statements) both
disturbing and amusing.  It's disturbing because it is such a blatant
attempt to provide M$ followers w/ boilerplate text to try to justify the
costs of moving to NT.  It's amusing because the only reasons I've seen
used -- in practice -- for switching to NT as a webserving platform amount
to this: "because our client|management demanded it (over our

("MS trashes itself") wildly amusing
