On speed and choice of CPUs
by welrdelr / April 13, 2008 8:16 AM PDT

Windows is not a true 64bit system, nor is it very stable with smp.
Buy whatever you can afford, and use the recommended programs.
If using a *n*x system, try for a stable base such as Debian, RedHat, FreeBSD, OpenBSD.

On CPU reviews: These are done with only one operating system. You are not being told an unbiased opinion.

Linux is not a true 64 bit OS either.

That will rile some but there was only a few attempts to make all the system 64-bit.

Windows works fine on SMP systems so you can take that other comment as some OS basher's weak attempt to promote another OS.
