Q.  Is it worth choosing 2+ core service on EC2 for NetBSD/xen?
I heard that NB6 xen can not utilize 2+ cores at a time.

t1.micro is found too small, yet usable. m1.small looks ok.  I've
never tried 2+ core service so far.

NetBSD 6 (and -current) can indeed use multiple cores on EC2. NetBSD 5.1 and earlier can only use one.

The NetBSD 6.0_RC1 AMIs will be available on EC2 in the next couple days. See: http://wiki.netbsd.org/amazon_ec2/amis/
