Don't focus on threading, focus on processing. X is certainly going
to gain from multiprocessors, because you've got multiple processes
(at least the X server and a client) running. Web servers will gain
because you can run things on multiple processors.
Me, I'd always take the double. Life's too short to run one process
at a time. Dual-core is not remotely as crippled as HT.
