Unfortunately, that guy has disconnected his iPaq from the Internet because it has been hit badly :) Well, Linux + Apache is free, compare to vxWeb which is a commercial product at $59.95 per copy. And it let you walk around with the web server in your shirt pocket :)
$60 vs $0 doesn't make a lot of difference to me. What does make a difference is how many features do they have and what performance.
Someone still has to explain to me an application where you'd really want a web server on your iPaq.
To test run applications on the flight etc.
I acctually took this serious a while ago (2 years), since it's not very cheap to connect to the net via a mobile, and it doesn't go very fast when you download the pages, i would have to get a web server for my PDA when i was travelling, so i could test run, .asp pages against access db's etc.
Of course you could buy a laptop and everything would be much easier but anyway, i felt it was a good reason (even though i never went trough with it!)
