[kwlug-disc] Linux winning over coprorate sites

One interesting observation: the "Other" web servers have a slow rise too. I
am not sure who would account for that, but a few guesses that I can make:

First, the qq.com Chinese branded web server. Probably just a re-branded
Apache.

The second would be Google's Web server, rumored to also be Apache based.
Given that they have lots of their sites with https (e.g. Gmail), that would
make sense that they are growing. But who can tell really with them being
secretive and all.

The third would be nginx, which is a lightweight web server that has been on
the rise in general, and specifically for service static files since it is
both fast and memory tight.

I like that finally Windows and Linux are tied in that segment, given that
Windows had the upper hand so far.
