Since I don't want to jack the thread where this discussion started, I've started a new topic here. I've heard people say it works, and people who say it doesn't. The people who say it does work, ironically, are using single core processors according to their sigs. Anyway, I need to know if a dual-core works on Windows XP Home Edition, and if it does, I need proof in the form of a single screenshot. (I already know it works as a single core in XP Home, what I need to know is whether or not the second core is detected and utilized in XP Home, if it is there'll be two separate CPU usage meters in the ctrl+alt+del task manager)
