The Apache WWW server (www.apache.com) is, atthe time of writing, the most popular WWW server software, and it is free for anyoneto use. It often runs on the free Linux operating system, and the two together providethe backbone of the WWW.The immense quantity of useful information and opinion available on the WWW is, inmost cases, provided freely, for the general good of all.Sharing gives us power over our own lives. No person can control a thing when it isfreely available to all. Sharing is a basic human impulse that binds people together.When we share knowledge, skills, experience, and wisdom, it costs us nothing but ourtime, and often leaves us richer than we were.Colin Low, 8th.
