SubjectRe: What is 2.4 Linux networking performance like compared to BSD?

However, I think you've hit the nail on the head here; much of tux is
just general-purpose network file-blasting. The right hacker could turn
it into the fastest web-cache on the planet with the right modules. I
believe Ingo already did a basic ftp server based on tux, just to
demonstrate this generality.

Ingo? Am I crazy or enlightened?
