This is true but if you have any serious IB server implementations it is
wise to have a dual processor machine so that if IB ever gets in a tail spin
you still have the ability to control the machine. use IB_Affinity provided
by Karsten Strobel. It is a simple utility that sets the affinity mask so
that IB only operates using a single CPU leaving the remaining ones for
system tasks.
