It's been time since I looked into Orion but here is my opinion:

1. Orion does not connect to native servers such as
2. Orion is not open source, its code is scrambled and you may not
decompile it
   it is rather hard to debug like that in an IDE.
3. Orion does not provide an NT service. 

Other then that, if you are willing to pay 1500$ (really not much) and
you do not
want to use a native web server; orion is a better choice:
1. Spec compliant including SSL support
2. Very fast 
3. Supports J2EE in a very nice way. 

The only problem that you can think of is support and documentation.
