in fact win7 and win8 are bi-modal as well:

linux64 is stable :)

I don't see any change in this trend over the last few months- so this seems to not be affected by weekends/load.  WinXP has the largest difference between the low and high modes, probably worth spending a small amount of time looking into- there could be an easy win there.

One thought to look into it is spsProfiling.  If we collect profiling info on a low value vs a high value we could end up seeing the difference easily.

maybe analyzing per page and trends on that could help shed light.
