In Pictures: 15 high-impact Apache projects

From Harmony to Hadoop, Apache has been a powerful contributor to the open source ecosystem

HTTP Server

This project, aka “httpd,” features an HTTP server. “In many ways, Apache httpd is still the cornerstone of the Apache Software Foundation,” says Jagielski, who has been a committer to the project since 1995. “It would not be an overstatement to credit Apache httpd with the popularity, usefulness, and ubiquitous of the Web. Having a ‘free,’ open source, and fully compliant reference implementation allowed the Web to become as universal and pervasive as it has.”

The latest version, httpd 2.4.4, offers improved performance and suitability for cloud environments. “This includes dynamic reconfiguration of reverse-proxy setups, faster and more memory efficient request processing, support for asynchronous I/O, and a suite of new modules for in-process and on-the-fly content processing.”

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
