Nginx is easier to configure in my personal opinion. Plus, it’s got it’s whole non-blocking processes thing going on. It can serve multiple concurrent requests at the same time. The biggest thing for me: simplicity.

Keep in mind, I have a VERY strict computing philosophy. I believe whole-heartedly in lightweight everything. It’s absolutely a bitch at times to administer an Arch server. But… I love how minimalist and lightweight it is. I usually know what’s going on because I built the system myself and it only has a select number of packages on it. Not a bunch of junk that some other distro thinks I want.

Same type of deal with Nginx. I don’t need the Swiss Army Knife that is Apache. I’m good with a really sharp combat knife :)
