the only reason for having a second CPU is if you're doing very math
intensive applications, or need to use a second CPU for handling large

FreeBSD is fast, very fast. SMP doesn't always improve your compiling
times, nor will it nessassarily make your machine noticably faster (bus
speed, RAM speed, and DISK I/O will affect that first). what it will do,
though, is increase the available CPU for handling applications.
