IIS 6 has been remarkably successful since it was introduced just over a year ago. As per Netcraft (reported in May 2004), “2,100,000 hostnames were identified on Windows Server 2003, with a gain of 390,000 hostnames since April 2004. Around 50% of these are new sites, while just under 100,000 have migrated from Linux.” Or in other words, 1/4 of the IIS6 hosted sites deployed in April 2004 migrated from Linux. That is impressive, but Microsoft wants more. Which is why Microsoft launched the “Try IIS” campaign earlier this week, with an accompanying website at http://www.tryiis.com/. Read it for yourself, are you convinced?
