Doesn't Mindcraft 3 (aka, Return of the Penguin) also have a single
CPU, 512 mb ram test too?

My main problem with their tests are the use of the Win95 clients
(now Windows NT), and the use of Apache for a static webserver speed
test (when Zeus has been shown to be up to 3 times faster serving
static pages). The test should also be run at a slightly less biased
site than ZD labs (though they have a lot to lose if they are shown
to be biased) using off the shelf hardware and production drivers.

If I had my way then the test would also include a water pistol
shootout between the Linux kernel team and the Microsoft board :-)
