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?

Dear Mike,
I have some KVM switches in our own office ;)
And one little thing about switches is that you can’t go much far away from your datacenter. If KVM was the answer, then why people are using TCP/IP and Internet?
Why people writing and using extensive remote management softwares?

I didn’t mean to “invent” a new remote management system. It was a hack for showing how we can distribute resources over a network now that grid solutions are hard to find.

Sorry if I sound impolite, English is not my native language. I enjoyed your post so much.
