How much Apache?

estimate that use of Apache potentially accounts for somewhere between $2 billion and $12 billion in the United States. Apache’s advanced functionality provides reasons to think the estimate tends toward the higher number, but, as yet, standard methods can’t settle on a single number.

Is that a lot? That equates to between 1.3 percent and 8.7 percent of the stock of prepackaged software in private fixed investment in the United States. That looks like a lot to me, especially for one piece of software.

Another, in the long list of answers to the question, “What have the Romans ever done for us?”

  1. The aqueduct?

  2. Apache was developed in Rome?

  3. C’mon Desiato, accept a backhanded compliment to the US.
