I was definately not complaining, I brought it up as an example where developers have clue and where they're doing the right thing.
I've too often been involved in customer complaints which ended up being the fault of Microsoft SMB and the customers having the firm idea that it must be a network problem since MS is a world standard and that can't be changed. Even proposing to change TCP Window settings to get FTP transfers quicker is met with the same sceptisism.
Even after describing to them about the propagation delay of light in fiber and the physical limitations, they're still very suspicious about it all.
