Tell them hotmail is running with Unix+qmail :) They're not using
openbsd...but hey, still unix. Also check http://www.openbsd.org/users.html

Tell your boss (or whoever is in charge of the decision) to go check bugtraq
archives and see how many Win2K/IIS bugs are versus Unix/Apache. That should
convince them NOT to run IIS in the future.
Also, if I was in your position, I would try to explain to them that the cost
of upgrading (software/hardware) and fixing bugs with openbsd is much less
than with Microsoft's products.
