Web serving on 2.4 and 2.6

Saw this on slashdot so probably everyone else has too.. Anyway, this comparison of the Linux 2.4 and 2.6 kernels is interesting, if only to show that serving web pages under Linux 2.6 “more effectively used system resources and served 5 times more Web pages than the 2.4.18 kernel did.” Boss, can we upgrade now?
