If we should have waited for a good network protocol from windoz, we still would run netbeui, not TCP/IP. If a feature must be added, a possible missing function is a bad reason, just add it.

I know, Finux has only superior protocols such as NFS, and invented TCP/IP.

Moreover, currently, the problem is not the CPU speed, it is the bandwidth (especially upstream). If performing 40 searches per second use all your upload bandwidth then I think we will just have something like ed2k (good to find something, awful to obtain it).

Did Slashdot's Lunix groupthink remove your ability to compose a coherent, rational thought?

The hub's problem is bandwidth. The client's problem is CPU time. Those "40 searches per second" are client CPU problems with regexes, not bandwidth problems that would affect one's ability to share files (rendering your odd ed2k comment utterly irrelevant).
