Rafe - I just upgraded to an Athlon 700 on Asus System board. If you give me the benchmarking program, or specs., I will run them for you. My system does very well with Photoshop, but I probably need a bit more memory (I have 256m. now and should have 512m. ).

I'll never no. I'am sticking with my garbage PC... >See the open letter to Apple. Its says it all. >http://arstechnica.com/wankerdesk/3q99/apple.html Hmm. Interesting letter at that URL there. Talk about fanning the flames, though... Look, one of the fundamental differences between the two camps here is that there really is *no* single company behind the "Wintel" architecture. With Cyrix out of the game, the field of CPU manufacturers has narrowed (too bad) but surely others will emerge to claim a piece of the market. Whatever happened to NexGen? The OS market for PCs is, IMHO, too much of a monopoly, and too heavily dominated by M$. I'd like to see that change. The real heroes in this battle are Richard Stallman and Linus Torvalds, who truly "think different." Apple wasn't the only outfit steamrolled by M$; IBM's OS2 was also a very worthy contender, in its time. I really have no idea how an Athlon will compare to Intel's fastest P-3. I'm rooting for AMD these days just 'cuz they're working so damned hard to challenge Intel. The AMD processor on my home PC delivers a great bang for the buck. I'm rooting for Linux, too, for similar reasons. No public response yet to my Photoshop timing measurements. Whatsupwitdat? ... rafe b. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
