I would like to see a debate on whether Hadoop is necessary or even possible on some ML algorithms. Take Logistic Regression. The Stanford paper linked to above suggests running a matrix inversion in a reducer. With 10 MM features that becomes quite a task. Mahout uses SGD for logistic regression, which is an online algorithm that isn't really run in parallel.
