I certainly like the name Apache better than I do IIS.  But be careful
jumping to broader marketing conclusions without grounding them in
research, i.e. representative polls and surverys.  Personally, I tend to
like names with meaning, like Apache, Tomcat, Weblogic, Hibernate,
better than generic names like Internet Information Server,
[CompanyName] Workflow Engine, etc, because the former names are more
interesting, intriguing, make you think a bit.
