        Are you joking?  It's nothing more than:  "Apple's SPEC
numbers for Intel machines don't match those from Dell/AMD/Intel.
Apple must be cheating."

        At least the Updates link at the top has more information
about how Apple cheated but it's still useless if you really want a
fair SPEC CPU2000 comparison of machines.  You won't get one
unless/until an official G5 result is submitted to SPEC so please
don't use SPEC to claim that your dual Opteron is almost twice as fast
as any dual G5.
