I was reading about async sockets with great interest and here are my 2 
cents: application
that I ported to Mono uses async sockets extensively, its a crawler and 
it connects to sites
and pulls pages for search engine, so one of users run it on Linux and 
he achieved throughput
close to 10 Mbits without problem. That was on Mono v1.1.5, so if async 
sockets become
faster with that new patch then things will become even better!
