and what most unix users do.

It is what a lot of unix users have done historically, but now that there is

and still most do.

It's not a "Unix way" versus "Other OS Way" thing -- its a response to the change in direction hardware development has taken over the past several years. Chip

on multichip hardware you can do many different things too - even faster as it's spread over cores.

how much cache RAM there is on each chip.  4 cores and 8MB is just the latest
step in that evolutionary arms race.

that's much better than "more gigaherts" way.

any unix should support it good - with any kind of load.

today i see performance improvements are mostly towards synthetic benchmarks like running 8 threads of mysql server.

it looks cool on paper, but we need good performance when running concurrently many different things.

if one plan to use single one program - why unix at all?

as i've tested 7.0 once, it was on same computer noticably slower under high load of different programs.

now i read 6.* is slower than 4.* (i never user 4.*)

isn't it something wrong with it?!

It depends very much on the application load you have to support and the sort
of hardware you have available. For the sort of multicore chips that are all the
rage nowadays, I'd go with 7.0 every time, even running single threaded

did you actually made a comparision with 6.*? not with "paper benchmarks" but just run 100 different things and check how responsive machine is.
