If you are trying to make a system that will beat currently listed
results, you must use Zeus.
I encourage the use of Apache for everything but I also know and respect
its current limitations; just what you expect needs to be very clear or
the whole thing will end up disappointing everyone. Apache can give good
numbers and I would be interested in seeing what results you can get. They
will not be as good as something like Zeus on comparable hardware. Zeus
will also, generally speaking, kick ass on most memory limited systems and
on CPU limited systems.
Results don't have to beat everything else to prove a point and to be
useful. You do, however, have to know where you are aiming.
