Although I only skimmed it, the impression I got from reading it was
"Neither OS demonstrated much in the way of MP scalability" there's a
quote in there that a 4-way NT system provided a 107% performance gain
over a 1-way NT system - I'm pretty sure a 4-way Sun does a trifle
better than twice the performance of a 1-way system!
