"The Apache Web server currently powers more than 58 percent of all the Web sites surveyed by Netcraft, with a significant portion of those installations occurring on Linux and BSD-based systems. It's an incredibly popular and powerful server, used by more Webmasters that all others combined. But there is one perceived weakness in Apache, which greatly limits its use and acceptance in corporate headquarters: an administrative front-end graphical interface (GUI)."

"This missing link--at least according to reviews in various Wintel magazines--makes Microsoft IIS the server of choice in the corporation, no matter how popular or robust Apache is...."

"On the other hand, however, I can see how some sort of GUI front-end to Apache would be worthwhile. Heck, there's even an official Apache GUI site that's set up to be a focal point for GUI development. So it's not a new idea, nor one that people aren't aware of. There are some Apache GUIs out there; and this small but worthy field just saw its ranks increase by one with Vision For Apache, by Focus Array."
