I've been running this for about a week. It's pretty, but it is slower than [
insert colloquialism here ]. On a PPro 200 it looks like it will take about 100
hours to complete a work unit under Win95. When I reboot into Linux, it
completes a work unit in about 4 hours.

Seti@Home for Windows needs major performance enhancements before it is ready
for prime time. Until then, remember it is only a Beta!
