It makes me wonder why Intel is only in the top 200...  Think about it -
Intel of all people should be WAY up in the rankings...wonder what the
problem is???  I would figure Intel could run it on litterally hundreds,
if not thousands of machines.  But I guess they don't feel like paying an
hourly employee to walk around and install the client on all of the
machines either!  What a great way to test processors though!

I would love to work in the burn-in department at a company like Gateway
2000...  Run the client on all of the machines doing their 48 hour (or
however long it is) burn-ins - at least a few thousand machines a week!
