Over and above the rate control algorithm Linux has a bunch of features
that make it work much better than a to-the-spec cubic implementation
(not surprising with a bunch of large content providers like $EMPLOYER
submitting their fixes upstream).
Things like TCP pacing and the work from the bufferbloat folk have
really improved things.
