    When I first saw this thread I thought "yeah, that's a low limit", but
    now I'm not so sure.

    The truth is, up until a few days ago when this thread started, I
    wasn't even aware that there was a limit.[1] Which means, that for me
    at least, I have never had the need to exceed the limit. Because, if
    I had I would have discovered what that limit was.

    I'm not an "occasional dual-booting" Linux user, I've been using Linux
    _exclusively_ since late 1996. In that 7, going on 8 years I have
    _never_ hit the limit. Does that mean that it is high enough? For
    me, yes. For others, I can't say.


    Footnotes:
    [1] Not quite true, I knew that there probably was some sort of
    limit, I just didn't know what it was.
