if you've voted for 'Dude, GHz is not everything'.

But hey... it's just another stupid poll and I guess hardly anybody of you knows how many MIPS or SPECs your machine really gains ;-)

Just for the case you are asking which one of your computers processor you should vote for:

- If you are humble, you take the slowest CPU (probably the CPU of your answering machine???)

- If you are boastful, you take the fastest CPU

- And if you are nitpicking you sum up all the available CPUs in your household (starting from the fridge to your television) and calculate the average frequency.

(Well, then I am boastful, since I simply took the machine that I am using most of the time, which is by coincidence my machine with the fastest CPU)

and if you are really boastful, you take 'faster than yours' of course ;-)

The poll should be based off a benchmark, and you aren't going to get any results if you have those two last options in the poll anyway.

You're absolutely right. But who knows the benchmarks of his system or would run a benchmark just to place a vote?

Is there a gap between 2.5 GHz and 3.0 GHz ?

Where do I put my 2.8 GHz processor ?

OK, I changed one option from '2+ Ghz - 2.5 GHz' to '2+ GHz - 3 GHz'.

Well, these are no scientific results anyway

I think the "Dude" reply covers this, but I might me wrong. When you can watch movies ... run KDE with bunches of Eye-Candy .... the "Dude.... " Reply fits just fine.

Like the guy who walked into a brothel and dropped his pants. One of the girls looked at him and asked.... "who ya gonna make happy with that?" He replied "ME!"

 64 bit?

Score 50%

I run a dual processor mac G5 at 2.5 GHz. Technically, you might say 5 ghz, since they run in parallel... but everyone knows a 64 bit machine is more capable than a 32 bit machine running at the same speed.


windows on a mac? who the hell would want to do that?

Given that your OS entirely supports the 64 Bit mode and your programs deal with big numbers - yes. Otherwise you will hardly notice any difference.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
