Right. The raw server count is only one factor. Considered alone, it's not too scientific. More data is needed. You might also consider performance benchmarks. A $3,000 Wintel server can server about as many static pages as a $30,000 iSeries server. It seems to me that the iSeries value proposition is a factor only when there's an interest to generate dynamic content, or deploy database applications to the Web. The problem is that once you're using IIS for static content, there's a tendency to use it for dynamic content. Nathan M. Andelin www.relational-data.com
