What exactly is wrong with all of you people anyway? Clearly there are drivers that are well supported and drivers that aren't. There are people out there trying to run their businesses and you seem to want to pretend that everything is just peachy and that everything can be tweaked and tuned a bit to be usable. The poor guy goes out and buys a big honking machine with dual opterons (probably) and he's getting half of the performance out of the box because he's using an ethernet controller thats a piece of crap, or a driver thats a piece of crap, or maybe both. If you're going to call people who tell the truth about things trolls, so be it, but all you're doing is showing your own delusional view of the world, or your own stupidity as an engineer, if you just think that everything works so damn well.
