"A Fortune magazine article compared a Napster transfer to a transfer from a Web site. In discussing the latter, Fortune wrote that "the song you wanted was stored there on a server, and thousands of people might be trying to access the same track at once. No wonder overtaxed servers would often conk out before you could download a single note."
