> Yawn. % of sites was always the figure quoted when Apache was leading. LOL @ strangely how now it's not good enough...

It is "not good enough" because Microsoft went on a campaign to wrought the figures by paying hosting sites to put all their parked domains onto Windows servers, probably with Microsoft supplying the server to put these on. This bumped up the "% of sites" to, as you say, 50%, but the vast majority had no content and no traffic.

> However Microsoft IIS also has a 10% share of the top 1 million busiest sites,

Down from 20% a decade ago, and falling.

Microsoft's market share of computers (as distinct from sites) has also halved in the last decade.
