I found this article on another site written by a former Solaris administrator who now uses IIS exclusively.

I thought it well written enough and definitely not spammy to share with the populace here.

That was enlightening.

However, in my limited experience when I was at a dot com with IIS and worked on it a bit myself, I will say that it didn't seem very stable when running large numbers of web sites...though that instability could very well have been the result of the limited experience running web servers in our group.

The big surprise for me was the url rewriting thing. I've looked into it before, but that fix they mentioned sounds easier than the other I read about.

I downloaded the PipeBoost and it seemed to really help - until I discovered that it wasn't downloading the external javascript files! When the page was refreshed it would appear.

they told me to not compress .js files. I tried that, and it still didn't work, so I uninstalled it. Glad I didn't spendthe $1500 for the program!
