Default Web servers: nginx overtakes IIS

From http://h-online.com/-1403980

Quote:
According to Netcraft's January 2012 survey of online servers and the software they use, the popular open source nginx web server has gained significant market share and overtaken Microsoft's IIS (Internet Information Server) – but only by a small margin. The researchers at Netcraft found that nginx is now used on 22.2 million of the more than 160 million active web sites.

Man, of all the information the chart in that article provides, nginx edging over IIS is the last thing that I would have noticed! So many other things of interest in this chart, like what caused the rapid decline in IIS use in 2009, what caused a surge of use of apache in 2011, etc.

Although, looking at the graph in greater detail, I wonder what is really going on here. Looks like all of the data 'jumps' in 2011, as if they suddenly found or had access to more server information.
