  How Much Abuse Will You Take from Microsoft?
Time: 14:07 EST/19:07 GMT | News Source: eWeek | Posted By: Andre Da Costa

Seriously, how many times must users and businesses be kicked in the face before they buy a clue? Before they realize that they don't have to stay in the abusive Microsoft relationship? The answer seems to be: an unlimited number of times. Take, for example, Internet Explorer. In the latest bad news, the newest zero-day flaw in the Internet Explorer implementation of the Vector Markup Language has opened up a gaping wound in Windows. Through that wound, every kind of garbage imaginable—bots, Trojan down-loaders, spyware, rootkits—are pouring into Windows systems.

"OSS doesn't need to take a timeout to learn about security as they've been baking it in from the start."

Yeah. The programmers working on OSS security were baked alright.

nlien, don't be naive. It might, oh just MIGHT... have something to do with the entry PRICE being $0.

Apache? Leading? Could if be that parked domains are the cause of the lead?

"April saw the single largest shift in a server's market share in the history of the survey, with Microsoft gaining 4.7 percent and Apache losing 5.9 percent.

The culprit? The domain registrar Go Daddy, which migrated more than 3.5 million hostnames from Linux to Windows. Go Daddy had formerly been the world's largest Linux host; it is now the world's largest Windows Server 2003 host, as measured by hostnames. According to Netcraft, the company plans to shift a total of 4.4 million hostnames to Windows Server 2003 before it's through.

Netcraft said Go Daddy's reason for the switch was that, "It was clear from all of the testing we've conducted that Microsoft provides an efficient and scalable operating platform, while also providing the performance needed to handle our extraordinary growth."

Apache 2.x - 33 secucity advisories http://secunia.com/product/73/?task=advisories
IIS 6 - 3 advisories http://secunia.com/product/1438/?task=advisories

Apache 2.x has 11 times the number of security advisories as IIS6.

I think the Apache team needs to take a security timeout.

Oops. Another month, another loss of millions of domains:

"At first glance, Netcraft's June 2006 Web server survey looks like bad news for Apache. And, since the vast majority of all instances of Apache run on Linux, bad news for Linux in one of its strongholds: Internet servers. A closer look, though, reveals a different story.

First, the bare, unadorned facts: the number of hostnames on Windows servers grew by 4.5 million. This gave Microsoft a 29.7 percent market share. That's a gain of 4.25 percent for the month. Apache had a decline of 429 thousand hostnames. That was a drop of 3.5 percent.

Still, that leaves Apache, and thus Linux, with the lion's share of Web servers: 61.25 percent.

If you take a look at the last three months, though, Windows IIS (Internet Information Server) numbers have taken a tremendous jump. Apache's lead over Microsoft, which stood at 48.2 percent in March, has been narrowed to 31.5 percent, a shift of 16.7 percent in just three months.

...

Most of Microsoft's gain, and Apache's loss, came from Go Daddy, a popular, cheap Web site hosting company, moving 1.6 million parked hostnames from Apache to IIS "

http://www.linux-watch.com/news/NS3407542187.html

If one hosting company moves its parked domains changes the IIS/Apache stats so much could it be that the Apache lead over IIS is exclusively because of just a few large hosting companies parking unused domains on Apache?

Oh, and I love the postscript by Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, the anti-Microsoft bigot.

"However, after considering those millions of idle parked domains, this move strikes me as more pathetic than convincing."

Hmmm. Its pathetic if millions of parked domains are hosted on Windows 2003 ... inferring that if they were hosted on Apache it would be evidence of the inherent superiority of open source?

Ha ha ha ha.

Apache: We lead the webserver race because of millions of unused domains.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!

OSS doesn't need to take a timeout to learn about security as they've been baking it in from the start.

You mean just like ACLs?
