He must of had crappy hardware. I run m0n0wall at our colocation on a 
100MB pipe. I push a lot of traffic out of m0n0wall on a P2-233 with 512 
megs of RAM. No packet loss, no problems whatsoever. That box has been 
up for months.

People tend to blend what is very unknown to them. It's much easier than 
learning and figuring out what's wrong with their own setup.
