CLient has proprietary accounting software and the programmer there offers a feature where there is a Pay Bill Now button on client's site that hooks up to that software in a PCI compliant manner. I believe it is because the accounting software is Windows and just the way the feature is made dictates that it be a Windows Host.
Of course now this has me thinking that I have never seen a solid niche player in the Windows WP arena and this makes me think maybe there is an opportunity as it would provide a choice for WP hosting.
I like to choose an arena, in this case I chose Linux for hosting as I felt it was a better choice because of Cpanel and this excellent forum
So I hate to split my time as I have not even scratched the surface of learning Linux Hosting yet.
Ironically I do have a client or 2 on a Windows shared account but that for need of MSSQL. I guess I could call them and see what they think about WP. I like them alot as they have been as solid as you could ever want a host to be. Hosting.com is the company. Calling them now.
Well, just a confirmation that WP words pretty well on Windows - I've also seen some amount of support for Windows IIS URL Rewrite module in WP to support pretty URL's. Plus Microsoft supports installing it through Web Application Gallery as well
