Apple is a 100% integrated system, something that, unfortunately, we
don't have in GNOME (that is, we can't distribute apache with GNOME and
set it up to tailor our needs, whereas Apple can do that with Mac OS).
Also, the KDE folks use the personal HTTP server on whatever port
approach, which, IMO, is wrong. It makes things non-standard and not
integrate at all with anything, also, it makes impossible to have
several users running their personal servers, since they would be using
the same port, etc, etc
