Microsoft’s PHP initiative: This is interesting.

Microsoft has recently released the second technical preview release of FastCGI for IIS, a new component for Microsoft’s Web server platform. This release is available immediately for download to Windows Vista, IIS including IIS 6.0 in Windows 2003 Server and IIS 5.1 in Windows XP.

The FastCGI component is part of the collaboration between Microsoft and Zend to improve performance and stability of PHP on the Windows platform.
