Actually, in the industry I work in (telecoms) I'd say more business critical apps
get run under Solaris, with MS being used as the presentation layer. I've always found the notion of using MS machines as servers a little scarey... And if you consider your online presence business critical, you're likely not running MS (http://uptime.netcraft.com/perf/reports/performance/Hosters?tn=june_2007).
Anyway, this is digressing from the the thread somewhat... sorry ;)
