I got to know about the non comm version through this posting. It was good to see that Intel offers such a thing..:-)
And I guess the non comm versions will be just as great as the commercial versions, because it follows from the Intel FAQ that there's no difference b/w the two..I will download, install and let you know..
I would like to use it (the non-commercial version) for research purposes (i.e. optimizing science code). But apparently there's no Mandrake 10 support or kernel 2.6.3 support or whatever is the issue.
