Agreed.  We have the power since MS can't buy us.  <g>

It will be a long time, if ever, before Apache appeals to certain
types of Windows people.  We can not provide the level of hand-holding
that some people need.  That's fine with me.

There is another group of Windows people who could easily come
around to like the way Apache works, although things like a 
web config interface would help them.  But that isn't Windows-specific.
This group is used to the MS way but hasn't yet seen a better way.

There is another group of Windows people who use Windows because
they are forced to, but who have a clue and like the way Apache
works.  This is the group that the first Windows release will
probably work the best for.

I don't see Apache turning into a "typical" Windows web server
any time soon.
