2. mod_cgi - It has served us for years but it's getting quite old and what most people care for - it's slow.
Well so am I ... but seriously, I think the slow argument is not as valid as it once was. Copy-on-write has made fork on modern *nixes very efficient. So before you start calling mod_cgi slow, take a look at your *own* code and ensure it's not slow.
mod_cgi has a lot going for it *because* it's old - it's well understood, it's universal, it's cleaner, any script/executable can be run under it (I wouldn't be suprised to see java progs under mod_cgi as the JVM start-up times continue to improve).
