Yes, thank you. I am just reading this:

Quote: Because Apache for Windows is multithreaded, it does not use a
separate process for each request, as Apache can on Unix. Instead
there are usually only two Apache processes running: a parent process,
and a child which handles the requests. Within the child process each
request is handled by a separate thread.

Fundamental stuff I did not know this explicitly.
