I found in the intel web site that the Hyper-Threading has this
Hyper-Threading Technology requires a computer system with an
Intel Pentium 4 processor at 3.06 GHz or higher, a chipset and BIOS
that utilize this technology, and an operating system that includes
optimizations for this technology.
By the way, what is PAE?

4.7 knows about hyper-threading, insofar as the kernel config
admits an 'HTT' option. As to whether it's better or not to have
can't really say. 2.4GHz is so ridiculously fast (kernel
less than two minutes, postfix in less than a minute)... I
will be difficult to detect the difference between with/without
I'm building a new mail relay, and it turns out the machine was
specified as RAID-5. I suspect that that is going to have a much
adverse impact on performance than HTT or not.
As to "responding to today's multitasking lifestyle", I sooner
implemented in the kernel, to unlock the memory I have above
