I’m glad that PC technology is so advanced nowadays… I saw a PC World advert on TV just now:
Greasy youth: “Dual-core? What’s that?”
Assistant: “Dual-core lets you do more than one thing at once – downloading your emails while you upload your photos”
Well thank goodness for that! PC World has finally discovered co-operative multitasking.
(… which, yes, was already old by the 70’s. And the Amiga had pre-emptive multitasking from day 1 :))
