And WinXP and WinNT and Win2003.

I believe that if Apple and Sun lent him boxes, he'd be happy to
do it, but my sense is that he put this on his laptop as a test
box using what he had available.

He appears willing to redo some of the tests (OpenBSD 3.4-stable
rather than a -current taken a couple weeks after the tree was
unfrozen for its biannual "get is stable and release").

Ted's comments also come into play:  By doing just part of what
a web server does, he's happens to hit a worse case of performance;
not something expected when a web server does this whole thing.
