Jigsawmanagement manage Events - trade shows, etc. It's fairly normal
practice to have specialists in event management handle the registration
and setup of Conferences and Trade Shows. I'm sure we'd see all sorts of
nasty comments on the list if Microsoft refused to business with any
companies that weren't using IIS.
By the way, if you'd queried the jigsawmanagement server directly, you'd
see it's running FrontPage on it's Apache server.
