Games Valve's Gabe Newall on Linux and Windows 8: "We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well. It's a hedging strategy. I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we'll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people. If that's true, then it will be good to have alternatives to hedge against that eventuality."

I'm not arguing the crux of what you've written but MS only made a $500m loss due to writing off $6bn from a failed advertising venture.

Also, if you're measuring total CPU load across all cores then it's not surprising that your Dad's mostly single threaded software doesn't stress all the cores.
