26.25 Gigaflop supercomputer in a breadbox

Of course if you load Windows Vista on that marvellous machine, it would
slow to a crawl.  

Have you ever wondered just what Windows is doing on a machine that stays
powered up?  (Phoning home? entertaining itself? Uploading all your secrets
to the CIA?) You can wake the machine up, the display crawls to life like a
slow-scan TV presentation, and the HD continues to whirl for the next 15
minutes, essentially making the machine useless in the interim.  This all
seems regardless of how much RAM or processor speed.
