Hi Daniel,

One of the engineers noted that it was possible to turn all of the processor off with this application. Some users complained that this caused the machine to crash.

I remember testing one of the first BeOS releases on my Genesis MP528, which had 4 processors… performance was very impressive. I didn’t try turning off all processors, unfortunately – I thought that they obviously would test for that.

I still have the Genesis stashed in a corner here, although with a G3/300MHz CPU card instead of the original 4-processor monster, which burned out due to (I think) non-tropics-proof heat-sink paste.
