XML or DB?

I have a question about performance, it may have been answered but could not find a thread about it.

BE is great and I love how easy it is to install and run, and with the xml it is easy to move.

But when planning out a site, has anyone notice when performance becomes a performance problem with the xml?

Is it 50 posts, 100, 10,000?

Has anyone seen a real performance diference between xml and a DB?

XML provider is only intended for smaller sites. Db provider would certainly give you a better performance for larger number of posts.
