Exciting times we live in, when I can have 2 apps running at the same time, side by side on my desktop, and even resize them! C'mon, this is ground-breaking. Though I guess it's not entirely novel, since I could do this with EMACS (and presumably VI), but it's pretty cool to see in a GUI.
True, that said - EMACS is still pretty much the most advanced OS on the planet.
I suppose I just figured that those with a legit use case (e.g. universities doing research into cluster computing), probably wouldn't be playing games on their systems and thus wouldn't feel compelled to update their firmware.
I've really enjoyed all the car analogies in this thread, but for me it's not like that - it's much more like Jersey Shore being cancelled halfway through a season
