Simultaneous Multitreading (SMT)

Hello Everybody. Hope all of you are fine. Please help me to provide a information. How can I know which operating system or software whether Simultaneous Multi-treading (SMT) enabled or not.

I believe your mean multithreading. I also believe multithreading should be enabled at the bios level.

**EDIT **

Logical Processor
The logical processor feature is based on Intel’s simultaneous multithreading (SMT) technology. SMT enabled systems appear to the operating system as having twice as many processor cores as they actually do by ascribing two “logical” cores to each physical core. SMT can improve performance by assigning threads to each logical core; logical cores execute their threads by sharing the physical cores’ resources.
To enable the logical processor feature in the server BIOS, select F2 on the server boot up screen and then select the following options:
Processor Settings -> Logical Processor, Values=Enabled (default), Disabled

Simultaneous Operating Systems
As the title says, I am curious as to how many OSes people have installed at the same time on a single machine. Currently, I have 4, but I hope to increase that to 7 by installing Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit and 64-bit and also XP Professional 32-bit (when I get round to it, that is).
