Apache is not just a product. It's an open source package with a huge user
base. By slipping riders into it you can achieve considerable market
penetration *automatically*. Once it's in there, and enabled by default, it
will be eventually present at almost every Apache installation a couple of
years downstream.

Ditto P2P packages with high initial user base, and auto-update feature.

Anything else doesn't have much chance, unless they're very lucky, and keep
being very lucky. Or are being bought up by some monopoly.
