The ultimate tip to the Internet

First if you use Microsoft IE, use it one last time to download Firefox. Otherwise, go away.

Now, get a little extension called "Server Spy". It downloads and installs in less than 10 seconds, and then you will see a new little area on your status bar, that tells you what kind of web server you're talking to (more accurately, the one that served the page you're looking at). If it says Apache, great. Almost anything else, probably fine. But when you see Microsoft IIS, flee!

Almost all screwed-up, bloated, crappy, stupid, brain-dead, dumbass, idiotic websites run on IIS. Sure, you could write a bloated, crappy, stupid, brain-dead, dumbass, idiotic website on Apache, but it would be a lot of work, and it's just natural on IIS.

Worse than the software, the morons who like working on Microsoft software have the common sense of jar of Vaseline. It goes with the territory though. Nothing from Microsoft is released until it has a nearly impenetrable user interface, is bloated with more "features" than you could discover in a year, and is guaranteed to use an astonishing amount of resources. Of course, crashes and security holes are always included, too.

Want more evidence? Almost all "Human Resources" websites run on IIS. Show me one of those that doesn't appear to have been designed by a retarded chimpanzee on crack.
