Moving one step up to the second layer: the web servers, considered to be the key element of the Internet infrastructure, we can notice a 60% market share for the open source Apache web server in 2011, leaving only 20% for Microsoft IIS.

The last piece of the web infrastructure is the server-side programing language with a stoning 75% market share for PHP, on the other hand, Microsoft ASP.Net is facing a decaying 23.1% share."
