I agree.... They contribute, then they repackage the free product as IBM
HTTP server and then sell support on it. This pays for there programmers to
make contributions. Sort of like Red Hat, who charge for service, except
this is Blue Hat ;)

Mmm, not exactly.  That message was posted in reply to a
query, for one thing.  For another, IBM has made significant
contributions to Apache, so it's not as though they're
taking without giving anything back.
