Alan Stevens from ZDNET throws out some statistics that are sure to drop your jaw in this review of SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9. The most interesting of which include the fact that there is no theoretical limit to the number of processors it can support. Also, he casually states that the kernel can handle up to 65,535 processes and over 4 billion unique users. If you really want to know what SUSE Linux Enterprise Server can do, have a look at this.
"There's now no theoretical limit to the number of processors, which is bit mind boggling -- as are the numbers for some of the other enhancements. For example, the kernel can handle up to 65,535 processes and over 4 billion unique users. Added to which the new OS can support 4,096 major device types, which is important for users looking to connect to large storage arrays. As is a new and more flexible I/O scheduler, centralised storage management tools and support for the latest USB and Serial ATA storage technology."
