I can however report that on a single machine with multiple cores,

"I have found that Big Design Up Front environments attract people who
want to talk about software development, while iterative environments
attract people who want to develop software. Is it any surpise that in
companies where BDUF is predominant, nobody wants to stoop to coding?

'Product Manager'." -- Reg Braithwaite
