	Just a quick note: the WebStone benchmark is still under active
development by SGI, and all interested parties are welcome to use it. The
current release is 1.0b2, and code and documentation are available at
<http://reality.sgi.com/employees/mblakele_engr/webstone>. There's also a
mailing list - send mail to majordom@engr.sgi.com with the text:

subscribe webstone

	We're not really competing with SPEC and Sun on this - it's in
everyone's interest to have a good benchmark available. But we have testing
needs today, so we'll use WebStone until we have a reason to switch.
