    Some benchmarks will show that Apache 2.0 performs a bit better than 1.3. However, a lot of us stick to 1.3 due to the familiar configuration directives, etc which are changed in 2.0. Also, 1.3 has been around longer so it is inherently more stable.

    I prefer Apache2. It includes more features, the would typically require third-party modules.

    Some third-party modules only work with 1.3 so you have to be careful. I tend to use Apache2, I'm not married to the old config directives and don't mind learning new ones.

    Apache2. Some third-party modules only work with Apache2 as well (mod_python comes to mind). If it comes down to compatibility issues like that, I'd prefer using the newer, better designed version with more features, better performance, and support for the newer third-party modules. But that's just me. Apache 1.3 is rock solid and has proven itself for years, as has Apache2 -- but it's still got the advantage, and since it's still being actively maintained, there's no reason to drop it if it works for you.
