I've installed Wordpress on Windows servers, and it works fairly well. One major drawback is URL rewriting, which WP normally does using .htaccess on Apache. That, of course, won't work in a Windows environment and I haven't seen a comparable plugin that will.

Oh WP works on Windows? I didn't know that thought it was Apache only. Thanks!

Nice list, guia.
Are you on shared or dedicated hosting, Ahkamden?

There are some problems with Apache on Vista, though. I've run into times where the server just crashes for no reason, actually while I was doing some tasks in WP now that I think about it.

I wouldn't suggest serving a site from a Vista or XP machine though. (They're fine for development.) I was thinking of the Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 platforms.
You can certainly run MySQL and PHP on IIS though. I have Drupal sites on a Windows 2003 server, so I know that works.
