I would design the kernel to use all the cores in a round-robin manner
to protect the machine's longevity too.

I don't think that would be suitable for adminning the box or building
external software (such as the smalltalk vm, l4, etc...)..
My thinking on the matter was to create a user with a home path of
/usr/squeakers/atg (/usr might eventually end up on a vastly
larger/faster drive if I'm sufficiently satisfied with the machine's
performance. The primary controller on the thing is UDMA/66, but it also
has a UDMA/100 plug...
I would then configure etc password like:
A root login would give you BASH but an atg login would load squeak. =)
Squeak will probably need some h4x0r!ng itself to work with both
processors and without X. -- A very useful project for the community!
I really need the experience too.
I WANT A DEC ALPHA!!! =)
