WordPress.com From LiteSpeed to Nginx

shyam: Goodbye Litespeed, hello Nginx, says Wordpress.com. Apparently the reason to ditch LiteSpeed for Nginx is, according to Matt M (but no quotes), that WordPress wants to run open source for their full stack. LiteSpeed is a nice (but expensive) async-IO based web server that provides full Apache compatibility (which is not that useful if you just want to serve a single app). Another blow to the proprietary software?
