I guess he didn't get in on the free offer of free hardware with Apache,
just like every other vendor gives you.

His argument about the biggest costs coming after the purchase is very
true in concept and I agree completely; if Apache were exactly the same
but it cost $$$ (even though it really couldn't be exactly the same and
cost $$$...) it would still be worthwhile in my view.  When I have an
important server depending on the software, I sure don't want to be
saddled by some dumb vendor taking weeks or months to do anything, even
about major problems.
