Point taken :)

I run Apache 2 on Windows and Linux here anyway, and I'm generally
the first to applaud it, but given the problems PHP, I find that
recommending Apache 1.3  is just easier, while it's still around.
Personally, it kind of irks me that so few people have made the
change to Apache 2.0, I find it to be fine for everything I do
(mainly PHP, some Perl) but unfortunately it hasn't had the high take
up rate it should have had by now :(

I suppose it's partially to do with the whole "Apache 1.3 works
great, why risk breaking something that doesn't need fixing?"
attitude. Until the majority of module developers for Apache 1.3 know
that it's about to disappear there isn't really a need for them to
recode their modules to the Apache 2 system. Obviously several sites
would have issues (like those using third-party PHP modules or Apache
modules that aren't available for 2.0) but I would imagine that the
majority of sites would be fine using it as it is now. Maybe some
more overt advertising of it on apache.org wouldn't go amiss...

Just my 2p.
