Eh, I dunno...

You start with that. But what you say is fairly consistent with what I said.

Remember that "Apache Web Server" is a play on the words "A Patchy Webserver", referring to the fact that Apache started out as a set of patches to the first, and then dominant (and open-source) NCSA webserver.

But come on. Let's cut to the chase and use the 'I' word. (Microsoft's favorite!) Basically, if Microsoft had been Innovative instead of chasing FOSS's tail lights with an inferior copycat product, they could probably have set the precedent of paying per simultaneous connection. But they weren't and so they couldn't. :-)
