Ticket #6851 (new enhancement)
Please warn users about Microsoft's even number of CPU's problems
|Reported by:||ToddAndMargo||Owned by:|
When setting up a new Windows virtual machine, please warn the user if he selects an odd number of processors. This is one example of Microsoft's code quality problems with an odd number of processors:
On my Windows Server 2003, sp3, x86, virtual machine, I found all sorts of stability problems were solved by switching to an even number of cores. Problems not related to KB954835, but I had that one as well.
Warning the user would save others so, so very much trouble that I had to go through. And, since it is very unlikely that Microsoft will ever improve their code on these things, you have to warm the user.
Many thanks, -T
