Without the preceding bit, it is taken a bit out of context.
Nevertheless, you are right.
The statement above was out of line and unjustified by anything Apache I 
have seen so far.
I did not mean it that way, and I really apologise to the Apache 
developers for any such perception.
Apache is a package which I have used as a fundamental tool for at least 
10 years, on more platforms than I can remember, and with no serious 
problem that I can remember. I could not have done without, and still 
could not.
It is definitely the greatest general-usage open-source application in 
existence, and I want to express my thanks for it, and reiterate my 
deepest apologies to the entire Apache team for even suggesting the 
stupid thing above.

I my own defense, I think it was a knee-jerk reaction to a previous 
comment, and to some things I have lately seen appearing in Windows 
versions of some (other) open-source packages in their Windows 
incarnations, such as the by-default settings that download and install 
updates without asking.
