    ComputerWorld recently published a review of Windows Server Codename Longhorn which includes a great overview of the next Windows Server release, including high praise for IIS7.  In this particular column, Jonathan Hassell calls out IIS7 as being one of "the most radical changes to Longhorn Server".  In the article, Jonathan writes:

    The venerable Microsoft Web server has undergone quite a bit of revision in Longhorn Server. IIS 7 is, for the first time, fully extensible and fully componentized -- you only install what you want, so the service is lighter, more responsive and less vulnerable to attack. The administrative interface for IIS has also been completely redesigned.
