    New Internet Land Speed Record! 6 Woody CDs in 78 seconds!
    by netsnipe on Wednesday, May 22 @ 15:57:34 BST

    Despite the recent expression of disappointment over Woody’s delayed
    release by many, we can all at least be very proud now that Debian
    GNU/Linux is now officially the fastest operating system in the world
    setting a new
    of 401 megabits/second over 12,272 km. Making the victory
    ever sweeter is that we’ve dethroned Microsoft who previously held the
    Internet Land Speed Record of 830 megabits/second over 5,626 km that
    was set in March

    Congratulations to the team consisting of the University of Alaska at
    Fairbanks; the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam and
    SURFnet, the national computer network for higher education and
    research in the Netherlands, and thanks for very much for
    demonstrating to the world that Debian GNU/Linux still has what it
    takes to be up with the very best.

    Let’s keep our fingers crossed that one day we can also dethrone
    FreeBSD’s load handling record of two
    terabytes in a single day off a single server. The Debian project has
    an official press release here.

    Now if only someone could donate this connection (which is 8000 times
    faster than my poor overworked 56K modem) to me seeing how bad broadband in
    Australia is becoming.
