Holiday reading: TCP Congestion control

Have you ever want to know how TCP shares the bandwith between different connections. TCP has to choose which connections need which amount of bandwith and how to handle the latency requirements of different types of connections. So that your voip call will not become unreliable when you start a large download.  There are different algorithms for this problem for example compound in Windows and cubic in Linux. But which of this algorithms is better for a given scenario in a heavy used network.

Here are my holiday readings regarding this topic:
