so then what is the new improved perf and smoother multitasking capablity of
the new 2.4 series kernels?

> However, having many open connections != many threads
with java and the normal blocking io, each open connection eats up a new
thread, and if u use native threads, then each open connection uses a system
thread. And the IBM JDK 1.3 breaks in spectacullar ways if u have more than
100 threads! Using green threads with the sun or the blackdown jdk makes
things real slow! This is one thing that windows does better than linux
normally.. running 100s of threads on win2k is no problem!
