Some data from an older machine, 199 MhZ Pentium Pro, 128 MB, Fedora 1:
$ time python2.3 -O 'b.py' >@out

real    2m8.363s
user    2m53.420s
sys     0m1.980s
$ python2.3 -c 'from test.pystone import main; main(); main(); main()'
Pystone(1.1) time for 50000 passes = 17
This machine benchmarks at 2941.18 pystones/second
(showing only the fastest)

I know nothing about benchmarking, and I don't know whether anyone can
use this data either, but it sure won't hurt anybody either ;)

Happy 2004,
Gerrit Holl.
