We just obtained a 1 GHz Athlon based box. It is faster than our
"number-crunching" machine (Origin 200), about twice as fast.

Now of course, the 1.1 GHz Athlon processor just came out. Now for the
Intel Pentium IV: news is that it is not ready for consumption yet.

Parallel processing: BeoWulf Linux (sold by RedHat nowadays) can manage
parallel computing on a cluster of Linux boxes. But I think only molecular
dynamics programs have a parallelized version available.

Don't even think of asking me: "I would              Het leven is genieten
    if I could, but I can't" (L.R., 1998)               (to live is to enjoy)
