At last! A motivation behind all this. I was beginning to wonder.

I saw a digital animation festival last night and was thinking of
getting a new compute server. By my calculations a midsized
PC passed even the CRAY-1 in compute speed sometime in 2002,
give or take a year. It probably would require a stripped down O/S
to do the computing. MS must take out at least 3/4 of the machine
