I have no info like that. MS based webserver is a piggy business, sorry. There is still tens of percent of Apache marketshare. Or you suggest me, that as a hobbyist or mid-business, I should set-up Win based machine, where I have to pay for each bit of functionality? How much does server Win2K cost? How much is MSSQL for? I have one red-hat server installed, and also have serveral friends running both Unix and Win based servers. The beauty of Unix based solutions is - you don't generally need to boot your server for many many months :-) I mentioned Rebol/Apache because it was concrete product - it was already done. So I thought it would requeire just some kind of recompile or not so much of a work .... I know author of Apache doesn't work with Apache dev. team, but I have currently no info indicating /Apache is gonna be discarded/non-further-developed. Hmm - even IBM offers now Linux based servers, even Linux based mainframes .... I am not sure of Apache dead-end ... Cheers, -pekr-
