    no, it's not dynamic data, the c't issue i have here says that it's a
    single static 4k file served over 2 ethernets. (ie. 'the case for which NT
    and IIS is optimized')

    thats a misunderstanding. It's _not_ CGI scripts - thats nonsense anyway,
    we are over 1000 hits/sec.

    yes, IIS serves static files faster than Apache ATM - although i'd like to
    see the e-commerce site that serves one single 4k file over 4 100mbit
    ethernets ;) And even in the static-serving tests, Linux beats NT hands
    down if the number of files is increased to a more realistic value.

    i am getting 1-CPU performance of 3500 hits/sec (small static files) with
    a 'dumbed down' webserver-demo coded up by Zach Brown which uses
    sendfile() and Linux's async IO API. Apache 2.0 (judging from Dean
    Gaudet's plans) will be able to get such numbers as well.
