I know how to read a sentence.  As far as I'm concerned, MS *does* try to
solve power user problems.  Just not as aggressively as other companies out

personally.  They're certainly doing fine in 3D graphics.

So I gotta run cron jobs all day long to be a "Power User" in your circle,
is that it?  I can't just punish the 3D graphics HW?

Your apps, your problems.  Not mine.
