Benchmarks When running tests, installing operating systems, and compiling software for my Ultra 5, I came to the stunning realization that hey, this system is 64-bit, and all of the operating systems I installed on this Ultra 5 (can) run in 64-bit mode.

I think it can be used like you said: to ask further questions.

I think you can never have too much analysis, really.

Every sampling method you can devise can tell a story if you know how to read it.

A hearty WELL-DONE ans keep up the good work.

PS - I recently installed Gentoo Linux from stage-1, which I expect is analogous to your set-up; Starting with the compiler, the kernel and every executable on the system gets compiled specifically for your chip, using all your chip's optimizations or CISC-tricks.

It realy runs super-smooth and quick on my 2.4 GHz AMD.

Had to scrap it because I eventualled messed it up totally trying to get the soundcard to work, but I'll be giving it another shot soon!
