Spin control is always so entertaining to watch. One thought: M$
claims that Hotmail had to "customize the filestore and IP stack because
"off the shelf" Solaris could not scale..." Oh, wow, so some poor
sysadmin schmuck had to up a couple of inode / IP-related constants in
config files and rebuild the kernel, there's a tough and completely
unusual job.

I wonder how one would accomplish that sort of thing on NT?
