I really hate this "my computer OS is better than your OS crap" I'm 
seeing in this discussion. Perhaps Mac OS doesn't support multitasking as 
_you_ define it, but right now I'm typing this message, printing a file, 
watching the Braves shut out Pittsburgh in a window and crunching keys at 
about 600K k/s. By _my_ definition, that's multitasking.

By the way, this machine has done 870 billion keys since I last restarted 
the client.

Let's please keep religion out of it!
