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 see how that is inexpensive. Doing multple PC with VNC you would be required to have multpile licenses of PhotoShop, plus CrossOver if you are running it on Linux.

I would like to share resource from multple PC like openMosix but unfortunately either the apps I want to run don't run on Linux and openMosix doesn't work for Windows.
