I remember seeing a PDC presentation on the Windows Kernel regarding Threads vs Fibers and in it Mark R. mentioned that this caused SQL's Thread mode to run almost as fast as Fiber mode, but with added stability.

Does anyone have a link to this? Or similar?

I'll use this as a motivation to push people to 2008R2

I don't know of anybody using Fiber mode for SQL after all these years and I cannot ever recall anyone ever telling me its a good idea. I know the following is rather old, but take a quick peek at this

However this article from Linchi gives a more positive spin
