Windows 7: Multicore requires OS rework, Windows architect advises

I wonder if GPGPU will be used to replace CPUs in the future? May be easier that programming everything for multicores.

For a short time I remember seeing some HP desktops for sale at BestBuy with a pair of 320GB Sata drives. For some reason they went back to the one big HD scenario.

If the HD can't keep up now, how's it gonna' be with PCs configured with 8 cores standard? Just make sure you open all your apps first before you start one of them really doing anything!!

As a noob in this field I must agree that HD i/o seems the biggest bottle neck in user experience at the moment.

Absolutely. Many novice users, and even some experienced users, don't realize that the major bottleneck in a systems speed is not your RAM, or your CPU, it's the HDD. OS will increase speed when HDD technology catches up. They are way behind.
