I see a lot of comparisons between Apache, NGINX, Lighttpd, Cherokee ... but never a comparison with the YAWS webserver written in Erlang.

Maybe there is a reason for this? Or maybe YAWS deservers more attention...

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This isn't a place to give products "attention", or for advocacy, but rather a place to solve problems. If you want to ask about YAWS because you have a problem then ask away. If you want to see more answers about web serving mention YAWS then answer away. – RobM Nov 30 '10 at 11:39
Dear Robert Moir, I've no hidden agenda, because I even didn't try YAWS yet! I am interested if someone has made comparisons already, or if there are missing components etc... I also want to mention I found new products thx to serverfault, stackoverflow etc so I hope a post like these can be useful for some. – PieterB Nov 30 '10 at 12:36

Because, In all honestly, I've never heard of it. The others (and IIS) are more commenly known and used.
