    I think your right to an extent. Excluding all other servers -

    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

    Inter-portability- 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?

    Portability: Apache

    Addons: Apache (IIS is a joke here)
