netcraft results not correct about my webserver

ok, I am running Linux with Apache webserver. From time to time I check on netcraft results on my server. Well, the first reports are correct. but then all the sudden last result says unknown OS and WindWeb 2.0 webserver. I don't even know what the heck is WindWeb 2.0. I am not running windweb, I am running Fedora Linux Apache server. Why is netcraft reporting wrong results for my webserver? Is there such a thing called WindWeb?

thanks in advance

Netcraft gives wrong information about my server, too. But I don't mind because the less crackers can determine about my system, the better. (Not that Netcraft is a valid measure of security, but the general idea may be the same.) And besides, my server is setup to send out as little info as possible.

I don't know that there's any way you can really correct the fact that Netcraft's info is wrong...
