Hi Wilbert,
Here are a few reasons:

* flexible server -- geronimo is a component based server (has been  
from the beginning). We provide a JEE5 compliant and Web Tier (JSP/ 
Servlet) server images. However, you can easily build server images  
which are customized to your application requirements. For example, if  
your application(s) don't use JMS, the server images won't contain  
them. Alternatively, you can choose the functions that you'd like to  
include (e.g. JSP/Servlet, JMS, deploy, and admin console).

* maven -- maven integration for building server images (see above),  
controlling servers, and deploying applications

* plugins -- geronimo plugins provide an easy mechanism for installing  
server function or user applications into a geronimo server

* admin console -- easy to use interface for modifying a server's  
configuration and settings survive server restart.

* jee 5 certified

* apache -- apache community, license, etc
