"New Netcraft survey claims the open source Web server has cornered 60 percent of the market. Microsoft IIS numbers increase too, but market share declines."

"British Internet consultancy Netcraft has posted the results from its March 2000 Secure Server Survey, and the open source Apache Web server came out on top -- again. Apache usage grew by 21 percent in just one month, grabbing an additional 2 percent of the Web server market. Apache now holds 60 percent of the market, more than the total market share of all other Web servers combined. "A 2 percent increase is really significant," says Netcraft director John Prettejohn. By contrast, Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), which posted a 12 percent gain, lost nearly 1 percent of its market share. It now holds 21 percent of the market. The Netscape Enterprise server ranked a distant third, losing nearly half a market share point."
