Perhaps I am picking a nit, or perhaps I am deeply confused. I thought select() was a pretty painful wait to get notification of activity, because the kernel side had to build up a big data blob describing what fds had activity, and then the user side had to grovel around in the big data blob to find out what fds had activity. Is WaitForMultipleObjects() this bad?
I should hope it is closer to epoll, where you get individual items indicating activity.
