I'd like to bring people's attention to the latest results of Karl
Unterkoffler's benchmark for MMA 3.0.  According to the results
presented there, a Pentium Pro @ 200mhz is almost twice as fast under
NextStep 3.0 as it is under NT 4.0.  Anybody knows why?  Is the
NextStep version optimized for the P5, P6?  How can there be such a
difference?  Comments anybody?
