Yes, I'm interested too. I'm looking for all-round performance. That would
mean the Pentium-II if necessary. But if Linux doesn't make much use of
MMX, and given the Pentium Pro's integrated L2 cache, perhaps the Pentium
Pro might prove to be a better choice. Most of the benchmarks I've seen
are Windows based, so they're probably not very useful to guage
performance under Linux.
