This is meaningless for the average desktop user of Windows XP Home (and even professional) since the maximum # of processors utilized by the O.S. is 2 (professional)....

Unless, of course, microsoft has enabled use of more than that in XP in some fashion (SDK perhaps?)

Anyone want to chime in on this?
