Subject Re: Apache wins CNet award for excellence

It is really freeware.  I don't like the term either, but it is the
closest thing that fits.  Freeware does not imply not copyrighted.  public
domain implies that.

I prefer "freely available", but that is hard to explain.

I would have been more pleased if cnet went more into reasons why to use
Apache (ie. not just it is free, everyone else does, and it works), but it
is nice to see them making that pick even though it means little.
