there are reports the the 2.6.x kernels are significantly (like 40%

Ive been waiting to get either the new g5 laptop, or the new amd64FX laptop, if either ever come out. Id proabably run linux 2.6 on it. What are peoples dream PD machines. Sence this last question is slightly OT, perhaps emailing me directly is preffered?
