Looked at this a while ago on the folding forum. Seems like with 4 virtual machines running Linux and HT on, a Core i7 clocked at 4ghz nets about 11-12k PPD. People with similar clocked i7's running Linux natively have been able to complete the giant 25k point WUs in the deadline time. Keep in mind each core can use 500-750mb RAM.

Still very green at all this, do you get more credit for crunching using Linux in a VM under Windows than the native clients?
