Dear Geo,
I find it very hard to believe that Linux doesn't do threading very well.
Sounds like a setup problem or a distribution problem (RedHat or Caldera.) I
do plan on benchmarking the two databases in a project I am working on with
a friend. If you would like to know how the tests come out please send me
your E-mail. This will take a few weeks.

Linux runs good when doing a single query, but doing multiple queries sucks
bigtime compared to MSSQLserver. Linux doesn't do threading real well, it
didn't appear to be mySQL but instead looks like an OS issue.

I was looking into it for a different db application, don't know if emerald
would make much difference or not but I suspect not.
