Member since:

but the second and most amazing thing was the substantial decrease in compile times...... I clocked it out to somewhere in the vacinity of 30-50% faster depending on the application that is being compiled

I experienced the same.Compiling firefox-1.0.6-r3 for eg didn't take as much time that it would normally on x86 (even a P4 3.0GHz).

this is the first 64 bit machine i have build and... i'll never go back.

Defenitely,would like to get my hands on one of those X2's.
