I think you're missing 'the point'. I don't want to speak 'for anyone'
here, but I really don't think that the main 'goal' of the Apache
'project' when it started was to 'attain' a high market share. I think
it was 'more' of a "hey this kicks ass, lets make it better" type of
'thing'. At least thats why I 'lurk' here and learn.  You're obviously
looking at it from the wrong 'P.O.V.'.

Sorry to waste 'bandwidth' on this post.
