Editorial Wishful thinking? Yes, but let's consider the possibilities. The last couple years have seen significant advances in hardware production and design. One of the more interesting (and potentially revolutionary) developments to take place this past year is the announcement of a new CPU, the STI (Sony, Toshiba, IBM) Cell processor.

Acting like several CPUs in one, the Cell will be able to power multiple operating systems at once, as well as bear the heavy computing load that a single system can place on the CPU

I stopped reading here.

What a new processor may be technically able to do in a possible eventual future has no value.

And when I read that a current CPU can't bear the load, it just proves that this article is written by someone influenced by PR and marketing, and that the author does not know how a CPU works or how to program one.
