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 don't think Photoshop uses a lot of CPU, but it uses a lot of RAM and HDD resources. I use Photoshop every day. I have 2GB RAM memory and 2 WD Raptors SATA of 10,000 RPM in Raid-0 , it's necessary to use Photoshop and to work fast with high-definition graphics.

I doubt the average photoshop user ever heard of "Linux", "Fedora", or even "WINE". Installing WINE is painful and only "power users" are able to do so.

Unfortunately "power users" don't use CAD or programs such as Photoshop.
