    If got IIS already, do we still need Apache?

    This is because I read a book which has a section "Installing Apache for Windows."

    You don't need Apache, though you may choose to use it as it certainly has several ups over IIS (I love the .htaccess setup, though .NET allows you to do this with web.config as well, IIS doesn't out of the box).

    Apache also has other things like PATH_INFO, and ForceType.

    Microsoft may be evil, but I still use their products, because umm... they make great products. (aside from windows of course, but hey, I couldn't do any better.)

    Windows is also improving. (IE: 2000/XP/2003.)

    Yes, they have some great products, and I use many of them, unless I can find its equal in the open source community.

    Micro$oft or otherwise, it doesn't stop millions of people using their software, so you may as well develop your websites for it.

    You've found equals? Here was me thinking that besides Apache, MySQL, PHP and Linux that equals were pretty few and far between and that you had to take a hit in terms of features, user friendliness and interoperability [img]images/smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
