I agree, and I'd go further to say that, in the real world, sub-second
response time depends upon many different factors within your client's NT
network. I'll venture a guess that their actual configuration involves the
application being installed on the client, with the DB centrally located on
the server. In this configuration, NT isn't acting as an application server
at all, but rather as a file server. The poor response time could be due to
the client machines, or network congestion.

No, I think they're valid measures. It's just that they're too often used to
oversimplify a machine's work potential.

Thanks, and likewise!
