Why is it that I was able to simultaneously watch a realplayer video in Netscape 4.x while editing a doc in OpenOffice with NO lag or skips or jitters, on a 200mHz box with 1 gig of ram in 1998, but I can't do that now with 2.6 gHz and 4 gigs?

When in fact, they need to be punched in the face and hard.
