Josh Paetzel, and lo! it spake thus:

How interesting. I've got one sitting beside me running my
workstation, like it has for the last 6+ years:
MPTable: <INTEL PR440FX >
Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0
CPU: Pentium Pro (198.67-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0x617 Stepping = 7
real memory = 268435456 (256 MB)
avail memory = 253014016 (241 MB)
FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs
cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID: 0
cpu1 (AP): APIC ID: 12
It's consistently worked very well. Oh, sure, it's maybe just a
little less snappy than some of these newer systems, but hey...

Ooh, you should find somebody in the Mozilla project to give it to.
Stick all THEM on PPros, and maybe I'd have a webbrowser that worked
faster than stone tablets ;p
