Of course, I'm well aware of that, however, having numerous fast boxes
running W2K on 3 1/2" IDE disks (the same make and model as in the Slackware
box) I can compare performance of other (non-postgresql) apps and be fairly
happy that the large amount of money I spent (not mine I hasten to add) was
not wasted. Like I said, it's not performance data, just experience and
judgment based on knowledge and extensive use of the systems involved.

Yes, I'd be very interested as well.
