New Revision: 940227

remove broken link and outdated discussion of server performance.
Clearly someone needs to go through this whole doc and rip out large
parts of it.

-        <p>Apache has been shown to be substantially faster, more
-        stable, and more feature-full than many other web servers.
-        Although certain commercial servers have claimed to surpass
-        Apache's speed (it has not been demonstrated that any of
-        these "benchmarks" are a good way of measuring WWW server
-        speed at any rate), we feel that it is better to have a
-        mostly-fast free server than an extremely-fast server that
-        costs thousands of dollars. Apache is run on sites that get
-        millions of hits per day, and they have experienced no
-        performance difficulties.</p>
+        <p>Benchmarks tend to be a measure of configuration competance,
+        rather than of server quality. That is, if you're an expert in
+        IIS, you can probably get it to run faster than you can get
+        Apache to run. You can therefore find comparisions of various
+        HTTP servers that prove that each is faster than all the others.
+        We tend to take server performance benchmarks with a grain of
+        salt.</p>
