Ok, I’m in for quad-core chips as well!  My only question is one of software licensing though.  If I remember Microsoft’s OS licensing correctly, XP will recognize up to 2 processors, Server Standard supports 4, Enterprise supports up to 16, and on and on.

Am I remembering correctly or will the shipping version of XP (and presumably Vista) only support 2 processors and not the full 4 in the core?

Hope I’m wrong, anyway read CrunchGear’s post on Intel’s chip plans.
