Greetings,

This is a paper from someone who measured Java application performance.
Comparing few threads and non-blocking IO vs many threads and blocking

It seems as if Erlang programs are getting the concept right.
The Erlang VM is another mattererl. Given +A it seems to be possible to
do it right there, too. Or I might be missing something.
