"Apache powers 60 percent of the web--literally dwarfing any compeitors or would-be competitors, with no end to the trend in sight. PHP is now in use on over two million websites worldwide, and that number is growing. Both are big-league examples of the Open Source phenomena: Virtually no marketing dollars spent in comparison to their closest compeitors, yet growing at phenominal rates. Open source Apache and PHP are fast, extensible, sensible, fairly stable from my experiences, and most importantly--free."

"What Will Apache Today Be?
That's up to the folks that visit. Here are some wishes I would like to see fulfilled:

  • A place where honorable discussion can take place regarding the most successful Open Source project ever.
  • A place where any item about Apache can be found, and if it's an Apache resource you should be able to find it here.
  • A wide, diverse spectrum of views and styles. I'd like to see article commentary in all styles--business cases, humor, you name it. "
"Some of the things I peronally don't want it to be... A Linux Today clone. Apache Today may bear a striking resemblance to the Linux Today (because it is, in a way a clone of Linux Today's code base), but I would wish more that the community that gathers here would be open to more diversity--all Apache operating system platforms, including proprietary ones--should be accepted. People should not flame another on a choice that they would not have made personally."
