Mike: Could you say something about netcraft & the server survey for
the 2nd-last paragraph?



INTERNET - April 1, 1996 - The Apache Group today announced that their
popular webserver, Apache, was found by the Netcraft Web Server Survey
to be the most popular server on the Internet. The latest Netcraft
survey found that Apache and its derivatives claimed a 29% marketshare
as of April 1st, making it more used than any other webserver on the
market. The NCSA server, which had previously held the number one
position, now holds a 26% share of webservers surveyed.

Sameer Parekh, President of Community ConneXion, Inc., commented on
the Apache server's suitability for high-security applications, "Time
and time again security incidents on the Internet have shown the
importance of having source code available for the deployment of
secure Internet and Intranet applications. Apache is an excellent
example of the kind of product which is suitable for high security
applications, since the source is provided with the product allowing
full scrutiny of its implementation."

Speaking of Apache's competition in the packed World Wide Web server
arena, Apache Group developer Alexei Kosut remarked, "While
commercial servers are limited by profit margins and corporate
politics, a free server like Apache is limited only by the
imagination." In fact, the Apache Group is working furiously on a new
version of their server, which Kosut promises will have "more new
features than you can shake a stick at."

"The Netcraft Web Server Survey is the most comprehensive survey of
webservers on the net," said Mike. Run by Netcraft Ltd., a web
development company in the UK, the Netcraft Survey covers more than
one hundred fifty thousand servers on the net. The full survey results
can be reached at

The Apache Group is a collection of web developers dedicated to the
development of a high-quality webserver for deployment throughout the
World-Wide-Web. The Apache Group prides itself on the available
source, open development environment, and fast bugfix turnaround.
