Perhaps back when php3 was new and apache was strugling with windows,
it was considered test platform.

Its kind of difficult to come up with reasons not to use IIS without
knowledge of:

  1. Who and what experience does he(she) have in administrating these
     Windows servers.

  2. What kind of application do you intend write in php.
