So am I running linux/x/shells/etc. really lightly loaded.
This is amazing. I thought that the pr166+ which runs at 133Mhz,
was supposed to be "comparable" to a p166 with shortcomings in
the fpu, but I did not know that the integer unit was this much
better.

Anybody have any pr200+ or perhaps K6 numbers?
