Apache It Is

At lunch today, a friend (who works in IT) asked what platform I’m running my sites on. I stumbled for an answer, before blurting out, “Not Windows!”
I run my personal sites and we run this site on Apache servers. Apache currently enjoys 70% market share, with Microsoft, Sun and Zeus running as distant finishers.
According to Netcraft, an Internet services company based in Bath, England, there are 74,409,971 websites on the internet. Over 50 million run on Apache servers.
Netcraft also says that 2005 is the strongest year ever for internet growth, as the web has added 17.5 million sites, easily surpassing the previous annual mark of 16 million during the height of the dot-com boom in 2000.
For reference, Technorati is tracking 19.1 million sites, most, but not all of which, are blogs.
