May be we can do something
Well, there is only one way to combat MS's tactics. Bring APACHE to Windows faster than MS. The same way ICQ took off like crazy, a lite version of APACHE can be ported to windows, a basic-home-user version that Joe Blow that just got his computer and wants to put up his small webserver or the-little-kid-who-just-got-his machine can use. But unlike MS Lite version doesn't mean giving up functionality. The little web server can be for dial-up users as well as dedicated (ADSL, Cable). People will eat up like crazy, the same little things like MP3 and ICQ spread through the net this baby can to, once it has spread Micro$oft won't be able to do anything about it. They are even trying to kill ICQ by putting up Microsoft Buddy List in their new OS. The only way to beat Microsoft is to create something compatible with their products only better and free, then no one can say oh don't use that software cause it won't be comptaible with your current Micro$oft products.
The ultimate thing would be an OS which can run Windows products!
