    Hey I cut it down to 6kb, I can't help it if everyone else posts 150kb images! I know bandwidth, screw you.

    I just ran it again, this time with Seti@Home turned off and got 179.3 and 410.1 - I would have assumed the test software was good enough to take account of the machines loading, perhaps not.

    Hey adrian, try this....

    Regedit -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> System -> CurrentControlSet -> Control -> PriorityControl

    Change Win32PrioritySeperation to the decimal value of 27 (it's a bitmask)

    Then try it again and see if it's higher.

    Ouch...

    mine is 16.6 rating with 67.5 megaflops, but I am running quite a few apps right now. However, I doubt that the rating/flops would go up much anyways.

    What's the use of a fast pc with programming anyway? You'le
    need a advanced program to make good use of it anyway.
    I say stability is much more important.

    Right, but stability you'll only get in *nix, not in Windows

    Hmm, my uptime under AIX is still a nice one, 167 days, it's an server that run's apache, mod_perl, mysql, php, jakarta, and still the system works fine.

    Hmm, beat this Uptime you can't with windows...

    two things:

    1) "can't" is a strong word. You want to match up with Windows? Match with the NT/2k/XP line, not 9x. I'm sure there are far greater Windows uptimes than 170 days.
    2) You're a unix-loving idiot. As are most *nix users. Notice I said "most"...I've met a few who I've respected.

    //edit: I just have to throw in a third:

    >> and still the system works fine.

    And why wouldn't it? You think the power to run a whopping 5 applications makes Unix a super-system?
