Indication of Windows Speed

    I know this is overly simplistic, with all the benchmark software out
    there (which I don't understand how they work anyway), but I noticed
    tonight, the first time I won a game of solitaire in Windows XP Pro,
    that the cards did their little cascading thing slowly across the
    screen. In Windows 98SE, if I won, the cards flew all over the screen.
    I've been suspicious of this system running properly since I put it
    together. It runs, launches programs, the programs, run etc, but I've
    been concerned with the speed. Is this ending animation of a winning
    solitaire hand any indication? I'm running Windows XP Pro, a P4 3.2Ghz
    processor, 1Gb DDR 3200 RAM. All my drivers are up-to-date (if the
    manufacturers sites are up-to-date. ATI Radeon 9200 video card with
    128Mb on board memory. Any thoughts? Thanks.
    P.S. I'm not suggesting that anyone out there actually plays solitaire
    anymore :)

    No, Windows XP cascades the cards at a set speed, independent of processor
    speed. Thanks for the good laugh. :))
