Well, my experience is exactly opposite. After enabling IIS on Windows the 
first thing usually is that nothing works. And if it works the 'nothing works' 
state will come soon for no reason. Aside from that, tests showed that the 
AMPP stack has the best performance on Windows. While I understand the reasons 
for choosing MSSQL (although there are plenty of huge users running MySQL) 
there really is no good reason I know of to pick IIS....unless it is a 
Microsoft only shop where best of breed is irrelevant unless it is from 
Microsoft. I just think that IIS is a cruddy product. Difficult to configure, 
flaky when running, and a dismal performer.

Sorry for digressing from the actual issue.

David
