Regarding the benchmarks I get on Ubuntu64 ...I find them rather startling when comparing to the benchmarks I get in windows: Ubuntu64> Benchmarking: Traditional DES [128/128 BS SSE2-16]... DONE Many salts: 12292K c/s real, 7334K c/s virtual Only one salt: 11313K c/s real, 6755K c/s virtual Benchmarking: BSDI DES (x725) [128/128 BS SSE2-16]... DONE Many salts: 452905 c/s real, 270447 c/s virtual Only one salt: 453722 c/s real, 270613 c/s virtual Benchmarking: FreeBSD MD5 [32/64 X2]... DONE Raw: 109733 c/s real, 65604 c/s virtual Benchmarking: OpenBSD Blowfish (x32) [32/64]... DONE Raw: 5042 c/s real, 3010 c/s virtual Benchmarking: Kerberos AFS DES [48/64 4K]...

Real live decrypting doesn't really seem to be faster - atleast not 10 times faster than on windows...
