After installing the latest 5.2 rev on my Pentium 4 running Windows XP, I thought to have
a look at the CPU utilization.  While Mathematica was busy doing a long numerical
integration, and no other applications were running, I activated the task manager and was
surprised to see that the two main users of CPU time were the Mathematica kernel at 51%
and the system idle process at 48%.  Does anybody know if it's possible to get the kernel
up to something closer to 100% utilization?  Should I blame Mathematica or Windows XP? 
wink, wink, nudge, nudge. ;-)
