Ok, that put things right again - I got it completely wrong. So, not 
that bitter I thought it would be :-)

Yep, I got the expression wrong - thought of 2 real CPU cores in one die 
which would have excluded Xeon-like setups.

What I still do not understand, however, is why they push a Home Premium 
version without XP emulation (almost all new machines sold come with 
it). End users will have a great bunch of older software they depend on 
which they will want to continue using. As far as I can see, they would 
have to upgrade to Professional to be able to use XP emulation. Or did I 
get this wrong, too? :-)
