Well!  We've got 5 months!  What are we waiting for?  :)

This article is really hilarious.  Moving along:

  Ease of use appears to be one of Netscape's strengths

  over Apache. Sean Smith, a Web administrator at

  Electronic Data Systems in Plano, TX, <color><param>ffff,0000,0000</param>who
just started 

  running Netscape Enterprise Server</color>, says Apache requires the administrator

  to have a <color><param>ffff,0000,0000</param>working knowledge of Unix</color>.
 On the other hand, "I can administer 

  Netscape Enterprise Server through a browser," Smith says. 

I think this would be a great candidate for in_the_news... it's only fair we put 

lousy articles there too :)

Yup.  The Zona survey was responded to by CIOs, CTOs, and MIS directors, not by 

sysadmins or engineers.  I'd be willing to be that many folks who use Apache don't

tell their bosses they do, and since "Apache" isn't a line item in budgets it 

doesn't even register with those corporate types.
