The comment on the change is:
Having "i don't know" in the middle of a FAQ just chapped me

  == Why should I use Geronimo instead of A.N.Other-appServer? ==
   full compliance, use of proven Apache technologies, fast and reliable development, doesn't
cost 100.000$ ;) etc.
- == Both Geronimo and Tomcat are created by apache, what is the difference between these
projects? ==

-  I don't know.
+  Tomcat only provides a Servlet container, suitable for hosting web applications. Geronimo
is designed to implement the entire J2EE (now known as JavaEE) stack, which includes: a Servlet
container, an EJB container, messaging provider (JMS) and resource adapter container(?).
+  A more interesting question would be about the ''relationship'' between these two projects,
but hopefully someone else can speak to that.
  == Why Geronimo exist ==
   The aim of the project is to produce a large and healthy community of J2EE developers tasked
with the development of an open source, certified J2EE server, that is ASF licensed and passes
Sun's TCK reusing the best ASF/BSD licensed code available today and adding new code to complete
the J2EE stack
  == Can my company use Geronimo? Are there any restrictions? ==
