John Robb says:: “I have 95% of my PC’s processer available at any given moment. In a year that will probably be 98%, in three years it will be 99%. This model of the Internet is so messed up. The fact that over 90% of the computing horsepower on the Internet sits idle at any given moment is insane (in fact, 98% of my DSL connection is dead too).”
Question for John: what’s the utilization of your car? How about your microwave or toaster? Even your TV?
On the one hand I’m energized by the Ray’s post and others about the potential for the PC in a new role - breaking out of client-server and into something both more personal and more powerful. Cool!
But even then I bet we only use 10% of our systems, so relax, John!
