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...
