in thread Perl advocacy, CGI/ModPerl vs ASP/JSP

They describe the machines that power the site here. I wouldn't call 10 Intel boxes a big fat system. They probably cost less than one Sun box.

    More importantly, if it is a problem that can be solved by throwing more computers at, then you have a linear growth scalability. If you have a bad implentation, like bad algorithims, you could end up with an exponential growth, which cannot be fixed by throwing more computers at it. Perl can obviously support good programming and linearly scalable systems.
