PacketStorm asks: "There's always an argument between TCP and UDP users. TCP users complain that UDP is non-determinstic and lossy, while UDP users complain that TCP is slower and nobody needs all the features anyway. So the question is - has anyone actually seen/experienced UDP loss in high-traffic environments? Is the degeneration of UDP any better or worse than TCP in a congested environment? TCP also craps out in times of congestion, but at least you know - or do you? Experiences?"
