if so, what we think is right is merely the result of evolutive advantages of morality and nothing else.

a mobile cpu switches between frequencies very fast on demand, so if you increase the top speed, it will spend less time in that state.., so for example we are comparing (40% full@1ghz 60% idle@250mhz ) vs (30%full@1.4ghz 70%idle@250mhz) . so yes, you can save power overclocking in the typical usage of a mobile device.

i used to know by memory, every socket on the market, and every cpu family. but now im like "What is this I don't even " when i decide to update my desk (c2q 2.6 4gb) im gonna have a very hard time choosing.

i also used to know the relative performance of every graphics chip. up to the nvidia 9800 era...

itÂs just sad... im getting old.

-Drivers. Devices always have drivers for windows, I donâ(TM)t want to have to do research to find if there exist "good" drivers.

-Prior knowledge. i "know" how to manage windows, do complicated things, etc.


-Performance (Flash anyone)

-Multiusers, anyone can use one of my computers, and know how to do anything.

ItÂs just easier to use windows.
