Netscape Enterprise Server replaced on

The always-fascinating monthly Netcraft survey is out. Writes Mike Prettejohn:

Remarkably, this month Netscape-Enterprise has been replaced on . Although Sun and AOL have dissolved their iPlanet joint venture, and is wholly owned by AOL, the move still seems likely to create useful marketing collateral for Microsoft, and indeed, Covalent and Red Hat too, as they sell to enterprises where Sun/Netscape is the present incumbent. Looking more carefully, Netscape-Enterprise had already been replaced on some of Netscape's European sites. For example, now runs Apache, while in France runs Microsoft-IIS. It may prove challenging for Sun to convince people that they should not migrate away from Netscape-Enterprise when the Netscape sites themselves have done precisely this.

Mike, you are a master of understatement!

Incidentally, Netcraft's records for show that the transition has been made to Apache on Windows 2000. It will be interesting to watch the uptime moving average. In any case, it appears these transient errors are a consequence of the switch:

The server reported an error: The file "L:\static\xmlStorageSystem\users\0100887\index.html" is busy.
