this is coming from someone who thought 32 bit was good enough, remember indrek?! LOLz.
you thought that 32 bit was good enough and it isn't
when I model stuff in any 32 bit 3d modelling software most of the time it crashes when i load anything that is over 40,000 polys.
if the cores are faster they get the work done faster. I did not say anything that I was against multicores. LOLz.
But I don't overclock. I did once on this and it was too hot for my heatsink only solution (my singular fan died on this becuase it was cheap plastic that cracked)
people just need to make more efficiant software and that's the end of this discussion
let's instead speculate on what shoudl be in the next windows release->
I got some ideas:
better recovery tools that aren't disk wasting like restore
application sandboxing (will be in midrori)
better account controls and access
better security due to application sandboxing
application porting->useful for applications like photoshop,you can basically save your install and make it portable from computer to computer via a pen drive or even good if you reformat. (messing with adobe support is a headache to reactivate and do not help you if you bought it from a local shop) my architecture software is portable secured pen drive portable (but it needs a dongle to work if using it like that). I am also running the server/master version so its even wierder.
something like xkill in linux. or a quick hey to halt any crashing apps that do not want to close. better crash control
central package manager like linux. Also will manage updates for all software as well. adept is a good example.
I can think of a ton of other things
