Let me guess, PC rag, right?

For some reason (perhaps they don't actually know better), PC rags find 
it impossible to put up a fair comparison.  Perhaps Apache does reverse 
DNS lookups while MS's doesn't, or Apache busies itself with content 
negotiation while MS's just barfs, etc.  Reverse DNS over a saturated 
link could *easily* destroy any performance advantage Apache has.  I 
think they do this with Netscape's server some, too, which supports the 
theory that they just don't know what they're doing.

Oh, for some honest statistics...
