The Work Units that you crunched and turned in results for much be crunched by 2 other users before anybody gets any credit for that Work Unit.

If you follow the Work Unit ID links you can see what other hosts have been assigned the same WU and whether or not they are finished. Gives you a general idea of what you'll be getting credit for shortly.

Not really even a general idea. Although you may be able to find out how quick their machine is, you have no idea how many WUs they may have in their cache that need to be completed before this one, nor how quick their results will be reported.
