Come on, people, with 2 Gigs of main memory, spending 1.3% for the kernel
should be considered a Lesser Offense, especially because this number
includes all the dynamic stuff (you need _some_ memory to remember what the
2 GB are actually used for).

Needless to say, I want one of these... though I wonder if there is _any_
real-world application which 14 CPUs would speed up 14 times.
