    SubjectScaling noise
    I've frequently tried to make the point that all the scaling for lots of
    processors is nonsense. Mr Dell says it better:

    "Eight-way (servers) are less than 1 percent of the market and shrinking
    pretty dramatically," Dell said. "If our competitors want to claim
    they're No. 1 in eight-ways, that's fine. We want to lead the market
    with two-way and four-way (processor machines)."

    Tell me again that it is a good idea to screw up uniprocessor performance
    for 64 way machines. Great idea, that. Go Dinosaurs!
