Subject: Net$cape is wondering why Apache beats them


I received the following mail from Netscape. I thought you would like
to know about. They look like they want to understand why Apache beats
them. I answered very honestly (I chose Apache because of it has
excellent performance, it includes the code source and it's free).

Congratulation for your excellent work! I am looking forward to the
stable 1.1 version...

Guillaume.
