Hi,

It might be interesting to read a new paper the people developing
Scala have written, "Actors that Unify Threads and Events" at
http://www.scala-lang.org/docu/files/haller07actorsunify.pdf.

I haven't tested the latest Scala yet, but they report some nice
results for the "message ring" benchmark - 1,5 million actors with 1GB
RAM. Being able to handle a regular thread as an actor is also
interesting.

best regards,
Vlad
