"Netbooks" based on Intel's "Atom" microprocessor are turning into big hits
this Christmas season. The Atom, a super-low-power x86 processor, is an
"in-order" machine, which means that except for a few special cases it can
spend a lot of time waiting for data to arrive when it encounters a cache
miss. So, hyperthreading may make sense on this kind of processor as compared
to one with out-of-order execution.
Which raises a question: What's the status of FreeBSD's support for
for FreeBSD it's just like 2 processors.
