I agree that Windows isn't a dream environment. My
production versions of Apache run on Solaris and 
HP-UX. But for a local test environment here at work 
I was stuck with installing Apache on a Win95 machine
and at home I installed Apache on a Win98SE machine.
Certainly beats PWS if you're on a PC and need to
out a new SSI or CGI or the like.
