What is the difference between IIS 5, 6 and 7?

I would like to know the difference between IIS 5, 6 and 7.

It would be grateful if I get list of most useful commands that every developer should aware of such as iireset.

I'm looking for some tips and tricks related to IIS as well.

Thanks.

For most frequently used commands view this blog:

Apart from this you can use IIS manager to contol all the items via GUI.
You can run IIS manager by typing inetmgr in the Run command.
