Re: Alternative title

Why don't they just fix the Linux network stack so it has a proper modular architecture like Windows does (NDIS) ? TOE and similar hardware acceleration is way behind under Linux as it's a bolt on after-thought. This has been a long standing and widely known Linux weakness - and one that becomes more apparent as we move to ever faster network connections.
