[erlang-questions] Erlang is the best choice for building commercial application servers

Akka has very flashy statements on its website [1].

I want to mention that some very important aspects (like gc, memory
allocation etc.) are not covered on [1]. Yeah, it is JVM and we all know
how it will work. Makes no sense to expect something new there :-)

So, I believe that 2.1 million messages in Akka [2] and 1 Million in Erlang
are absolutely different messages.
