It depends on your file system.

We’ve had an interesting discussion about this at LinuxWorld when we
discussed file systems internals. Some people had millions of files and
folders and were discussing the merits of all the file systems. From a
Solaris standpoint, we can handle just about everything.

Chances are that you will not reach the practical limit with a current Linux
implementation.
