IIS is used for serving up web content. How useful it is sort of depends on your situation. If you are serving up .ASP web content, or just want to host your own content on your own server, then you would use IIS. If you are hosting content elsewhere, then you have no real need for IIS.

Keep IIS.

Even if you don't plan to create an Intranet site to share content, certain applications use IIS for their web-based management consoles (WSUS, Lansweeper, Outlook Web Access etc.).
