Just a rumor from a corridor neighbour that when running
Erlang SMP and doing some load tests he beleived it
scaled better for many scheduler threads. He thought
the Solaris process scheduling might be more evolved.
And this was on Sun hardware (Sun Ultra 24).

Linux also has different shedulers to choose from, 
especially in some distros.
