Seems to me that the numbers for the other Unixes come from a
comparative review that I saw some while back in some other magazine.
I suspect that rather than rerun the benchmarks, the author pulled
some old numbers out of a dusty file.  I'm not impressed either.  No
matter how you slice it, the numbers are useless for comparing Bell
Tech's hardware or software against anything else.


(bias note:  I'm not too impressed with either Bell Tech or UToday...)
