    It used to be exciting to read the new Web server share numbers from Netcraft every month. For a while there, Apache and Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Services) were really duking it out. But these days, the survey has a look of obsolescence.

    It looks like the market has hit an equilibrium, with Apache at about 67 percent, IIS at about 20 percent and the rest fighting over small niches. The basic numbers have been unchanged for about a year.
