Web-Applications - IIS (PHP and Perl are too resource intensive)
Static Pages - Apache (More hackable, can reduce the size of the server etc)
Ease of use - IIS
Cluster - Apache
Speed [Static] - Both/Equal
Customizability - Apache
As a person who knows that Apache is GPLed let me correct some of them.
Ease of use - IIS (out of the box, but there are also GUI tools for Apache)
Static Pages - What is this for? Speed?
Web-Applications - Apache or IIS (depends on what you use)
-- perl : Apache (with mod_perl)
-- php: Apache (more tested with)
-- .net: IIS
With Apache you can run almost any web app, including .net apps, with IIS you have less choice.
Cluster : nothin what is this for? IIS and Apache can be both clustered
Speed [Static] - IIS (Apache is a joke here)
Customizability - Apache (IIS is a joke here)
Inter-portability- What is this?
