At Last: Apache Runs on Windows
(no longer available)
"There's no secret why Apache is the most popular Web server on the Internet, running on almost 50 percent of all Web servers: It rarely crashes and, once set up, Apache doesn't require much in the way of maintenance. Plus, the price is right: it's free."
San Jose Mercury News, December 12th 1997
There's money to be made in freeware
"If some cosmic force caused all of the free software at work on today's Internet to suddenly stop running, major portions of the Net would come to a grinding halt -- because free software, sometimes called freeware, is at the heart of the action."
BYTE Magazine, December 1997 issue
The Value of Free Software
"The Apache project runs differently than most freeware projects. Perl, for example, continues to evolve under the watchful eye of its creator, Larry Wall. Likewise, Linux does the same under Linus Torvalds. But Apache is governed by 13 co-equal developers who share permission to commit changes to the Apache source tree."

Top Ten Things to be Thankful For, #10
"The Apache Group and the free Apache HTTP server stand as an appealing throwback to the early, less-commercial, days of the Net when things seemed to be done for love, not for money. Free and open standards supported and maintained by the people who use them are still a good thing for the Web. And, hey, Apache is a damn fine server, too."
Salon Magazine, 20 November 1997
Apache's Free Software Warriors
"A red feather resting against the words "Powered by Apache": On the Web, the logo is everywhere. And for good reason -- the Apache Web server, a piece of software that transforms ordinary computers into sites on the World Wide Web, is by far the most popular choice for Webmasters everywhere."
