I don't know about max connections, but FreeBSD set a record for over 1  
million packets per second, with linux on the same hardware only  
reaching around 100,000.  It was a dual 800mhz xeon I think.  You find  
the details when you search for freebsdcon and some sites like  
kerneltrap, slashdot, and osnews.
