 <p>A full setup package (.exe) containing the Win9x/WinNT Microsoft System 
    Installer installer is now available.  If the Microsoft System Installer 
    is already installed on the machine, there is no need to download the .exe, 
    save yourself 3MB and download the .msi package.</p>

 <p>This version is only available at present in a -no_ssl flavor, due to 
    ongoing questions of strong crypto redistribution.  When a binary build 
    with mod_ssl compiled in is made available, the -no_ssl flavor will remain

+
+<p>For those users who depend on modules which have not been ported to
+   Apache 2.0, the legacy version binaries including the Apache source
+   code files in CR/LF flavor is available in a -src.msi package.  Apache 1.3
+   was never originally designed to be run on Microsoft Windows, but
+   support for this platform was hacked in, providing an Apache Windows
+   solution but resulting in a server which is sub-optimal in performance, 
+   compatibility and stability.  The Apache HTTP Project strongly encourages
+   all Win32 users to migrate from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.0, which was designed
+   from the ground up to run on any modern operating system, including
+   Microsoft Windows.</p> 
 
 <p>The two -no_src versions, both the .exe and .msi installers, DO NOT
    contain the source code.  There is no other difference, and if you do
    not know the C language, or have no C compiler installed, these versions
    are faster to download.  There is no other difference between these 
-   packages and the -src.msi distributions.</p>
