I'm not to happy to call it a marketing issue, because this suggests that 
if you would have a big enough advertising campain, you can make AOLserver 
win from Apache. This is not the case.

It is the way you need to work with AOLserver that causes these problems. 
Not because AOLserver cannot do something (on the contrary, it is one of 
the most capable web servers), but you run into social/political issues, 
like you needing port 80, have a user who has a MySQL application in his 
public_html directory, etc.
