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?

I for one can see this as cheap and effective. I use an 8 port KVM my-self and had to make my own wires seen how the price for 50 foot cables was way out of the ball park. I got 7 machines and the biggest boy is the main lead so for task processing I'll use all 7 and hooked on on my D-link 10/100 mbps switch.

This method can be very expensive, and have wires running around.

Now I for one would like to know how come I didnt think of using VNC with Cross Over.

Great Idea I might just put it to the test.
