Accepted - but still a reasonable proposition, no?

I mean in previous OSs (2000 and before) even if you had the hardware
scalability, and the possibility that you would somehow get native
scalability - you still would come up against hard roadblocks.

For people wanting to consolidate, and / or with quite large scale
deployments, isn't it rather good news that there are improvements?

Just playing devil's advocate, and all...

'cos sometimes, it just seems like they're damned if they do, and damned if
they don't.
