4. Example run and results

The LBT was run on my home machine, a Pentium-class Linux box that I put together myself and that I used to write this HOWTO. Here is the LBT Report Form for this system:

This is a very stable system with homogeneous performance, ideal 
for home use and/or Linux development. I will report results 
with a 6x86MX processor as soon as I can get my hands on one!
