If this is the same test, repeated, then it's just the static page
serving test again, which is putting out 250MB/s of content.
It's a ludicrous test, and it was obviously chosen because it's the
only area where NT can compete with Apache/Linux. Linux and Apache are
'organic' products : they've evolved to be efficient in the areas
where people actually use them, including the dynamic/database HTML
solutions currently in use on the Web.
I concede that the numbers are probably accurate, but that doesn't
make them realistic.
