Hello guys,

in i found this link and
particulary this:

"I claim that Mach people (and apparently FreeBSD) are incompetent idiots.
Playing games with VM is bad. memory copies are _also_ bad, but quite
frankly, memory copies often have _less_ downside than VM games, and bigger
caches will only continue to drive that point home."

What do you think about it?
