I think the two are closer than that. Netcraft has had Apache at around 45% and Microsoft IIS at around 30% for a couple years now. > Also PHP is the most popular Apache extension present in between 40% and > 50% of Apache installations.

A slightly better measure *might* be the approach Dan mentioned a while back where he queried Google to count the number of pages indexed by suffix. Even so, you know what they say about statistics.... Will ASP.NET replace PHP? Time will tell. (I doubt it.) At any rate, I'm not losing any sleep over it.
