Good, I am now trying that out!

Late to this thread. If "that" was not lighttpd, I
highly recommend it and use it on our site. I uses
considerably less resources than Apache and is
significantly faster. BTW, YouTube and wikipedia also
use lighttpd.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lighttpd
"
Lighttpd is used by some of the biggest websites, including
sites such as YouTube, Wikipedia and meebo. Wikimedia uses
Lighttpd for some of its services[4][5][6][7] as does
SourceForge.[7][8] Three of the most famous torrent listing
websites, The Pirate Bay, Mininova and isoHunt, which have
more than 1,000 hits per second, also use Lighttpd.[9]
Lighttpd currently holds fifth place on the Netcraft "Web
Server Survey" (November 2008).[10]"


Looks like that page is outdated, or hasn't caught the attention of the editors recently.

"Wikipedia currently runs on dedicated clusters of Linux servers (mainly Ubuntu[96][97]), with a few OpenSolaris machines for ZFS. As of February 2008, there were 300 in Florida, 26 in Amsterdam, and 23 in Yahoo!'s Korean hosting facility in Seoul.[98] Wikipedia employed a single server until 2004, when the server setup was expanded into a distributed multitier architecture. In January 2005, the project ran on 39 dedicated servers located in Florida. This configuration included a single master database server running MySQL, multiple slave database servers, 21 web servers running the Apache HTTP Server, and seven Squid cache servers."
