Re: Fedora and RedHat's autism toward personal users

I would say that the web servers (and mail servers) are largely personal (or
religious) choices.  There are numerous quality web servers in existence: 
Apache, Cadium, thttpd, AOLserver, Boa, etc.  While I'm an Apache man myself,
I'd have to say I don't have any particularly solid reasons for using Apache
over any of the other servers (other than I learned Apache first).

I also don't see how having multiple web (or mail) servers in Fedora would be
any sort of pain...  Especially assuming Fedora is maintained by a large enough
community.

I'm also a sendmail man; I still haven't switched to Postfix (though I'm
looking to).  And I'm interested in giving Cadium a fair examination (because
Pike looks damned interesting).

Anyways, I just don't see how the web browsers situation is any different from
the web servers situations (or how the mail clients situation is any different
from the mail servers situation [I definately think Fedora should provide at
least Sendmail, Postfix, and qmail {hotmail.com wouldn't use qmail if it wasn't
good for something}]).

Okay, I'm done now,

Derek
