Drinks are spilled. I think I could actually deploy it to my users then. Other than Microsoft, no other name was more reviled by the Mac faithful than INTEL. have a peek here Windows 8 can forcibly keep programs from stumbling over each other's memory requests, disk I/O and cache paging....

shared storage, same file manager, etc) would be nice and reduce redundancy, but this idea of having to switch back and forth to do tasks is ridiculous. 'Windows' is entirely salvageable.
