Apache has never claimed to be the fastest server on the block. Because
of its design, I wouldn't be surprised to hear IIS is consistently
faster. Apache, on the other hand, is consistently more secure and more
robust. I'll gladly trade a few cycles for superior uptime.

(reasonable) flames. Because of its design, lighttpd is much lighter
weight and therefore faster. In balance, lighttpd is much less
