    http://www.acme.com - thttpd
    http://www.roxen.com - roxen
    http://www.boa.org - boa
    http://www.zeus.co.uk - zeus
    http://www.fenrus.demon.nl/ - khttpd

    I use Apache and thttpd only right now, and I've used Boa and Roxen. I
    know of people using Zeus, and it's pretty damn fast too. I'm going to
    start beta testing khttpd as soon as I get a free second. I can
    personally testify that thttpd is orders of magnitude faster than Apache,
    but it's a pain to add anything to it beyond basic static content.
