And on what data are you basing this rather wild claim?

Not that it matters, because you clearly don't understand what
Apache is.  It is *not* a product we make for some vast ill-defined
user base.  It's something we do for *ourselves*.  If that user
base benefits, cool -- but that's a side-effect.  Go re-read Roy's
recent message on this.

Once again, that's a commercial viewpoint, and not relevant to Apache.
