Apache continues to grow and the web continues to expand:
This month's gain of 1.34 million sites was the largest since April of last year (+1.7 million) and marked the 25th consecutive month of growth for the Web after a two-year shakeout to absorb the collapse of the dot-com and telecom industries.
Apache continued to take market share from Microsoft servers, gaining nearly 0.7 percent last month after gains the previous two months. After little or no change in server market share during 2004, Apache has widened its margin by 2.0 percent thus far in 2005.

I have to say, the Apache2 setup on linux is really nice, much more logical than Apache 1.3 IMO, took me about 5 minutes to figure it out, then it was like, hey, this makes total sense. Unfortunately the default windows install doesn't share those features from what I can see, unless they changed it recently.
Happily I never have to use IIS, except for one client, and we're getting ready to move that site off IIS, goodbye locked down features, goodbye server downtime, hello stability, hello *nix Apache/mysql. And goodbye ASP + toy Access db, what a relief.
