I have been using WP and WPMU with IIS6 and compatibility with mod_rewrite for years. No problem.
Also have been testing out laterst beta1 and today I decided to make a clean install of nightly build of the code.
This are the issues I discovered, divided in three section:
- - Single Site
After installing I realized that in the permalinks section I'm forced to use /index.php whick is hardcoded. dd32 explained in the list that this is because I'm not runing IIS7 or Apache. I had to add a filter to remove it. I think most of all this is wrong to force index.php on anybody and this should be removed. I would have to add the filter in all themes for example and there are stil many using IIS6 with some mod_rewrite compatible software.
