Yeah, Mozilla runs insanely fast on an AthlonXP 3000+, a crappy ide
drive and a $100 video card.  Or maybe it's the FreeBSD :)

Seriously, mozilla runs acceptably fast on my Ultra2 300/creator3d, 
so the Athalon machine above (which benchmarks 8-10x faster) should
run fast no matter how bad the OS is.  I'm sure Bill's Dual Xeon would
bench faster than the athalon.
