How many categories can you have?

I was wondering – how many categories can you have? And if WordPress does subcategories, how many subcategories can a category have?
If you have more than a certain amount, does it start slowing down?
Come to think of it, how many posts can WordPress handle before slowing down? How many users?
I use NearlyFreeSpeech.net, if that helps.
