I'll call you on that. A *lot* of people, both at home and in offices, are
running single core systems, and will be for years. Most folks can't
afford to upgrade every year or two... and since *most* folks are running
office software, browsing the Web, and doing email, don't *need* to.

Besides, this *is* Linux we're talking about, which runs on *everything*,
including 386's....
