And until you do, it wont go past 25 percent load.
That made me laugh; REP for you!

What I want to see is Intel and AMD making operating systems, along with Google. Perhaps All three companies could collaborate to produce a decent alternative to Windows? Surely the wealth and power of Intel, Google and AMD would be sufficient to see off MS's lawyers, attempts at hostile take-overs and market manipulation? I'd buy a new OS from those three, if it had all the game, software, driver and hardware compatibility of Windows, wrapped up in a conventional and intuitive GUI, with reasonable hardware requirements, at a fair price.

I could see them optimizing windows just for thier CPU's, just so they can compete with Intel/AMD, and possibly Nvidia eventually...

Possibly, but then again, more people might switch to other operating systems if they do. Not to mention that it might be considered a monopoly to do so.

Yeah, I could see them trying it and then getting sued for doing so . Oh well, they can afford to pay the fines and compensation...

LOL, yeah, what other OSs? Linux based ones? Yeah, I can really see hundreds of millions of people jumping ship to Linux OSs... I suppose it is possible, but highly unlikely... MS already owns the OS market, nobody is going to change that anytime soon...

Soon everyone and their grandma will start making CPUs. OCN should start making its own CPU .
