    Well I've just installed one of the OEM XP Pro packs that I get for newly built systems on my new office setup and I have to have an Admin password durin' setup, online activation is still simple, but this version already carries SP1 though still requires almost 23MB of critical updates. :eek:

    Bloomin hell! I don't even know what a AthlonMD is! I have never seen dual processor MB around or heard peeps speaking of dual processor mother boards - so how come there not so popular, plus what are the main advantages of one (apart from the obvious)? ;)

    Its MP not MD.
    And dual processor setups have been around for a long long time. I know quite a few SETI crunchers that use them. As well as CAD and other applications.
    BTW you need a real OS to use dual processor system. (Read: NO win9x)

    Dual CPU's are usually used in high end workstations as well as servers.

    The reason most people don't use SMP is because they don't have anything that really takes advantage of it. Sure, you can set all Windows processes to run on one CPU and run everything else on the other CPU, but it's not cost-effective--AthlonMPs are slower and the chipsets aren't as good as normal Athlon XPs.

    But, if you're doing serious video, audio, servers, high-end stuff that's quite process-intensive, a SMP setup is quite tasty.

    (and btw, SMP = symmetric multiprocessing, which is 2 processors)
