Hi, This Benchmark test has had me intrigued for some time, especially in Linux systems where system libraries change continuously. And I was especially amused when my little 2.0GHz Pentium M laptop (Debian Linux kernel 2.6.12) outdid a Redhat 9 Pentium4 3.2GHz and the Athlon 64 3200+ (Suse Linux) when it came to Transposing matrices. I guess thats where the buck stopped, because it was thoroughly thrashed on all other accounts.
