How did tux not make the list?
Not that I would have voted for it.
Apache has always been the leader. And have I been asleep for the last five years? What is up with all this web app / scripting crap? Personaly I think Java is complete waste of time and effort.. that aside what happened to good old HTML??? does anybody use that anymore?? all I ever hear now is XML this, Java that.. Personaly my websites look just as good as any PHP, Java, XML Monster (and my sites load faster) and I stick with good old perl and HTML.. all your Java Beaners need to remember the good old <TABLE> and image slicing.

I use mostly thttpd, as I think Apache is overkill in many situations. This being said, I think Apache is great for professional web sites...

Apache 2.x vs. 1.x would have been an interesting comparison. That being said, Apache is not only the #1 httpd in Linux, it's the number one in the world (dispite MS's stranglehold on nearly everything). Now that's saying something.

Apache all the way.

Currently running 1.3.29

Apache is the best out there for interactive stuff with PHP and all bells and whistles, so thats why I voted for it though.

But, TUX is very promising and I am a great fan of it, I use it to host the stats from my IRC bot, as it's simple, small and does the job

Apache, there isn't anything else that could match it.

IBM Websphere uses Apache (quite blatently) as it's web server.
