first of all - You have to pay for it (they have a give-away for one version
per company, but if you are in need for more than one you have to pay)

I realized no huge difference in performance, If you "tune" squid it should
be as fast as netcache - but you have to have experience with the configuration
of squid - and that is the difference.

If you like to click around menues, do http-based configuration - it's your
choice to pay for it. you can use netscapes fasttrack or you can use apache,
you can use postgres and you can use oracle. for (almost) every pay-ware there
is a pd-ware ... or (as with netcache) for every pd-ware there is a product
you can pay for it if you want ...
