imj : you're tredding on bloody dodgy grounds there "stolen people's money". You also don't know the background to what I've been saying (in all probability)

gman : multiprocessor works under Linux quite nicely. As to the speeds of the 233 vs X Scale. Remember, the XScale *can the thought of* as a very fast ARM7500FE chip - the processor does everything. Take a look back at the likes of the Amiga - it had chips to do specific tasks and boy did that machine shift! The Evo is the same. Specific chips for specific jobs. It makes it damned fast. I've asked if it can be demoed at RONWUG (even under Linux) but it's not allowed into the big scary world. It does run and it does run bloody fast (I've played on it at the shop). I think it's been a case of once bitten.
