FireEngine aka Solaris 10 Network Stack



How did they get this past the lawyers??? They are actually saying that the new network stack is up to 45% faster. For a performance guy, this announcement is truly amazing. This article also discusses the coming 10 Gigabit networking. You can download the latest version of Solaris 10 x86 from here and take this screaming network stack out for a spin. Run your own speed comparisions against Linux, Windows, or whatever. (Disclaimer, your results may vary. Please do not use ftp as a networking benchmark, it sucks. Use the ttcp utility.)
