I have tested my CFD code using Dec's Fortran 90/95 compiler on 2 identical Alpha 21264's @500Mhz. The ratio of
time to finish for Tru64/linux was .85. This is right in line with what Dec was saying the performance penalty
for using Linux on their machines was. Does anyone know why this is? I heard something about Linux not having
page coloring, which I am not familiar with.
