Editorial Problem: Even the most powerful PC's become non responsive during resource-intensive computations, such as graphic design, media, image rendering and manipulating. The traditional solution has been to upgrade to a faster computer and throw more computing power at the problem to lessen the wait-time. But there's a simple solution that utilizes multiple machines, but without using grid/clustering. For now, this involves a hack, but how hard would it be for an OS vendor to streamline this process?

Grid Computing

So why are we dismissing grid computing again. Sure, I can see the benefits of this hack now when we don't have grid computing but why would a vendor want to streamline this process when they could offer the much more general and elegant solution of offering grid computing where you could actually get the task done faster as well.
