Agreed -- however, if we can get IIS to work under wine, think
of the publicity!  Not to mention the troubleshooting.  :-)

I would strongly suspect that IIS calls a lot of undocumented stuff,
though.  But if someone has a heavily involved IIS-based website,
it's possible this might be useful, although it might be better
to just convert it to straight Apache as you suggest.  Throw on
a Jakarta/Tomcat servlet engine and one has roughly equal
functionality anyway, once the applets (objects) are converted.

(My employer may have this very issue, sometime in the future.
Our website is dependent on IIS; I suspect we'll rewrite it.)

The investment in time and money should be well worth it, especially
since Apache is as standard as they come. :-)
