Netscape does have a server market to protect. However, what is it about Netscape's Servers that is appealing? Everything that Apache doesn't have. Intuitive graphical server management, integration with things like Directory Server, Netscape ONE, ORB, Javascript development tools, etc... If Netscape can provide these things for the most popular web server out there, Apache, a very strong market foothold can be gained. By creating Apache modules which provide such things and selling a bundled package with support, Netscape can make inroads into the Apache server market and at the same time increase integration between Mozilla and Apache.
