Yup, I am developing on an Intel CoreDuo and the performance is quite good. If you run 2-way parallel it's even better.

My Linux distro is SuSe 10.1 and foam-wise it works fine. There are some minor glitches on my laptop but overall it's very usable.

I am about to try CoreDuo-specific ompiler options on Intel-9.1 compiler. Having in mind the performance is already pretty hot, don't expect huge differences.
