Why? Two reasons:

1) To test and get to know them. It was real fun.
2) After testing, they proved much more efficient performance-wise, and they have some very
useful
modules (mod_evasive, for instance).

- From a "completeness" perspective, they still lack lots of the high-quality modules Apache
has.

Exactly, that's why I still use Apache for them. (example: pmwiki)
