This might not qualify, since it used to exist for linux, but there used to be a graphical program called xosview. Using information in the /proc filesystem, it showed neat bar graphs of CPU use, ethernet throughput, hard disk throughput (read/write), and interrupts (I used it under FVWM and KDE, but it probably ran under other window managers too). Because of the changes between 2.4 and 2.6 kernel, the rise of USB devices, changes in the /proc filesystem and possibly other factors, I believe it was discontinued. Could be trivial to rewrite for 2.6 kernel, I don't know.
Enter GKrellM and KSystemGuard.
Both work on Linux 2.4 and 2.6 ... also FreeBSD!

No need for this thread anymore

The European Union has decided that if Microsoft doesn't give away parts of their sourcecode into the public they are not allowed to sell their software in Europe anymore. That was decided one year ago. They were givin two years to release it. Right now they have one year to go. To avoid problems Microsoft decided to release it earlyer within this year. On the news in my country, that of today, they said it was about some certain parts of the sourcecode that could be compared to a human's DNA. I gues it will be the kernel. The decision by the European Union was made because Microsoft didn't gave other software developpers a fair chance in the market. The source that will be released must contain as much information that is needed for fully understanding the way Windows works.

This should help ReactOS and WINE get better support for Windows binaries on Linux systems.

But the only remaining issue is if Microsoft will release their source code freely or under strict licensing conditions (NDAs and the like...)

They are not allowed to release it under a license. That's what it's all about. Because they are releasing it under a license company's don't get a fair chance in the market.

The European Union has hired a ex-cracker wich looks after the release of the sourcecode and a mediaplayer-less Windows version.

That may help projects like WINE, but running Windows programs under emulation will never get the same results as running native Linux programs. Therefore there will still be a need for native Linux ports, and also a need to discuss them!

Lotus Notes runs fine under Wine. The only place where I have run into problems is that when running under Wine, I had to use the actual domain name of the servers it was connecting to, instead of the strange Lotus Notes name/path/whatever that is used to denote the servers. For some reason Lotus Notes in Wine doesn't understand those.

Take a look here: http://wiki.winehq.org/BenchMark-0.9.5
in some cases, Wine gives better performance than *unspeakable word* XP cool, right?

Cheers,
