So people said that 2004 is the year for Linux. Surely there have been a significant number of developments that the fruits of are now just being seen. Things from Kernel 2.6, Novell buying Suse and Ximian, and IBM's involvement are a few of the bigger things to have happened to Linux over the last year. Other companies are now coming on board to the Linux way of thinking and millions if not billions of dollars are now being dumped into Linux to develop it as the premier business and home computing solution. Microsoft has finally taken notice though they're not following the traditional business model of make a better product they've just fallen back on the usual FUD of how Linux costs more and is less secure. Personally as a worker in the computer industry (My paying job) I've seen that Windows each month has less of a leg to stand on.

When choosing a web server, Apache very often wins against its competitors because of stability, performance, that fact that it's open source, and many other advantages. But when deciding on which version of Apache to use, the choice is not always so simple. On the one hand there is a very popular, stable version used by millions of users, version 1.3, and on the other hand, there is an enhanced and re-designed version 2.0. Read More...
