"If it does a lot of work [...] you might need to understand a lot if  
it breaks [...]"

That was the worst crap I have seen in years. Seriously, it's like  
listening to someone advocating intelligent design over darwinism.  
I've been involved in scalability testing on the .net platform and in  
my opinion this is just amateurish at best, ignorant at worst. That  
said, all angels of profiling are interesting and beneficial to follow  
up, but the blog post insinuates that (with some feable reservations)  
a user can draw interesting conclusions from the comparison. I think  
not. It is only useful for the framework developers and the post  
should be targeted at that audience.

I think the knew catch phrase should be "Lies, damn lies and blog  
posts" :(
