Make windows distribute work over all cores like OSX?
So you know how mac distributes work over all cores? (and if you dont) like how...say you are...i dont know what a good example would be....lets just say you are playing an oldish game. This oldish game only makes use of 1 core. On OSX the operating system takes the applications (game) intructions to that one core and divides it among all cores, allowing more to be done simultaneously and therefore gets things done faster.
As far as I know this is not so for windows, but does anyone know of a way to enable windows to use all cores to increase efficiently?

Seriously, OSX does NOT do that.
A single threaded app CANNOT be spread across multiple cores. Not on /any/ OS.
On both OSX and Windows (and Linux), multithreaded apps (even old ones) can and DO get spread across multiple cores by default. But ancient, single threaded DOS apps (Which require an emulator in Windows 7 now anyway) will only run on one core ever.
A LOT of what Apple is claiming about OSX is simply hyperbol. There is nothing new about hibernation, there is nothing new about fullscreen apps and there is nothing new about multicore use on multithreaded apps. (At least not on windows
Disabling core parking will ususaly give no noticable perfomance increase in reality (though maybe a little in very certain circumstances) but it will increase power use. So definately leave on for laptops. On desktop it won't really change much. I've never even seen it kick in on my desktop myself...
