Along the lines of personal tests, P6 whips P2. Where I used to work we
had a dual P2-233 and a single P6 (both running IntranetWare 4.11) and the
P6 NEVER went down while the dual P2 was going down at least once a week

Someone earlier in this thread mentioned that P2 was pushed out infront of
the P6 because it was cheaper/easier to produce. There is a rumor that
they pushed it because they could patent the Slot technology and lockout
AMD And Cyrix while they couldn't do that with Socket 9.
