Yan and Bill,
Thanks for the input. I'm intriguied by the impact organizations like Apache
are having on the industry. This seems to be a pretty strong community of
good willed developers that go out of thier way to give something back. Then
I look at corporations like IBM that also support Apache for different
reasons. I don't think thier primary intentions are to give something back
but rather to become more profitable. Interesting how the two blend
