Its pronounced enginex.. I switched it over from apache for just a few minutes to see how it works/handles the load.

What does it do?
It's a httpd, i.e. webserver software. It handles webpage requests and is faster than Apache. It's not quite as flexible, but that's because it's geared towards performance. A worthy tradeoff and should make for faster forums and less server load.

Apache is like Microsoft Word, it has a million options but you only need six. Nginx does those six things, and it does five of them 50 times faster than Apache.
