    very interesting statement, which appears to be contradicted by numbers on
    your website. Your website says you get a 1375 SPECweb99 connections
    result on a dual 1 GHz, 4 GB, PIII system:

    the best TUX 2.0 result published so far, on a very similar system (same
    CPU speed, same amount of RAM, same number and type of network cards) is
    3222 connections:

    the difference between 1375 and 3222 is quite substantial, TUX is 134%
    faster (2.3 times the performance of your server). I'm sure a userspace
    webserver can get quite close to TUX in simple static benchmarks (in fact
    phttpd should be very close), but SPECweb99 is far from simple. When
    saying you are 10-20% close to TUX, did you refer to SPECweb99 results?
