Ok im writing this on behalf of cPanel, i have no tie with cpanel and information i supply is available on the website.
cPanel, the leading Web hosting control panel software provider, will release its first Microsoft Windows ServerŪ 2008-based product line in beta later this year. Traditionally a Linux- and FreeBSD-based supplier of hosting automation tools, cPanel is collaborating with Microsoft to provide its customers with a greater choice in platform selection with Microsoft IIS7. "Microsoft has shown a strong commitment to the hosting industry over the past several years," said J. Nick Koston, CEO of cPanel. "cPanel's Windows development team feels that Microsoft IIS7 offers a robust, high-performance Web server with increased security that the industry will quickly adopt. Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and IIS7 with its modern architecture and support for legacy products was the natural starting point for our expanded product offering."
