This was discussed on Slashdot as well. Good article, not very general
though, as it relies on hacked versions of the kernel or FS options. And as
W2K is not very hackable... The comments go on to condemn other
optimisations as biassed or ignorant.
Still, interesting to see a benchmark that Microsoft have not paid for :-)
