No competitor

I think there's not competitor at all for Apache to win this award.

And it's going to be again. Hey Jeremy, you should have (just for kicks) included IIS in the list even though it only runs on mACROsFOT b0x3s. It would have been interesting to see if it received ANY votes.

Seriously though, shouldn't websphere and at least be listed?

On another note, you may want to consider splitting up the apache category into version 1.x.x and version 2.x.x just to see how many people are using, or have new confidence in the latest incarnation.

Jakarta is a great web server.
It would be cool to see a question like
What language do you use for web scripting?
If 95% of all web apps were coded in java, then jakarta would be ranked better. If mod_php was actually a seperate project, like jakarta, I bet Apache would not be so far ahead.

How did tux not make the list?
Not that I would have voted for it.
