Sorry for this, guess it is because I "use" this mailing list more as a message 
board, rather than an email list, I have actually never gotten any emails....
I just use http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.comp.security.openwall.john.user where 
the style is more board-like, hence the need for qouting the previous message 
when replying is not that neccessary to understannd the answer.
But I will try to remember that this is indeed intended to be an email list.

I see... and this is at default speeds... and well overclocked Conroe should 
be able to get us above the 2500K c/s mark then.... if only I hadn't just 
recently bought AMD64 ;) Oh well, AMD has been known as the king of 
Floating Point Operations in the past, they will be again... I guess

Does this apply to Linux vs Windows as well?
As far as I could tell, latest version of JTR would theoretically yield 
higher speeds on linux64 on an AMD64 cpu compared to windows...
However, I did test this and saw no higher speeds on Linux64 compared to 
windows32.... could be related to compilation though..not sure...
