 Does Cyrix II MMX processor is OK for Linux OS? If YES how much MIPS(Millions Instructions per Second) CYRIX gives in compare with Pentium or K6, K-2; which one to use? CYRIX is pretty cheap and I am still un-decided if it can handle a dual-boot LINUX-WINNT? What is the difference between these processors? What about the symetric processing? Always my attention is at CYRIX since is cheaper...
 
 thanks,

Mega - Don't be worried about getting a Cyrix/IBM CPU. I have been running a PR200 MX for over a year with Linux. You cannot compare BogoMIPS between differerent processors. If it's MIPS, then you are unlikely to see any difference whatsoever. For all you need to know, go to www.alternativecpu.com where there's loads of info and benchmarks. Dual boot is not a CPU releated issue. The Cyrix will dual boot.
