Ye even wonder if they know about developer supported software, thus far
all the free server/development lists I am on (Apache, Squid, GnuWin32)
provide me with much more updates than something like Microsoft or Netscape
could ever do...

Ok so one solution may break a feature/portion next month(not likely though
<G>) but no doubt we have about 10 solutions waiting to fix that problem...

Freeware? In my eyes one of the best things out there...

My two cents =P
