We just migrated from the Apache Server that came with BSDI2.1.  With
Apache our average load with only 4 minimum and 32 Max hosts running
was .70.  While with Netscape and several virtual servers and 16 Min -
32 Max each, our average load is .09

Seems to be running much faster, as-well-as the configuation and
changes via the administrator is quicker and easier.

Just MHO.
