dunno about `vs.', but last i used Linux/Alpha, 2.1.1??,

 1. You cannot compile a development kernel without SMP.
 2. egcs-1.1.1 breaks SMP on Alpha only, because the code relies on gcc
    2.7.2.x bugs
 3. gcc 2.7.2.x and anything built with it is unreliable on the Alpha

so, i would put this in Pot #2--Demonic Wintel/RedHat Conspiracies.
not `features.'
