You can multitask on a windows 98 computer. Having a rediculous amount of power that isn't needed is insane.
I like to have a game, the forums plus 10tabs or so open, have photoshop open and various other things, like skype or teamspeak.
Redicolous amount of uneeded power? Some of us like playing modern games on a modern OS. Or do video editing.
Not use windows 98 >.>
