    Found this pic. Nice display of the power of OSX and a nice dual G5 of course :D If I would've tried this with my PC back then I could've just unplugged it after opening 1/4th of those apps.

    Wonder why Macromedia Flash isn't open?

    Could that be a little too much? :confused:

    8 quicktime windows too, or are those iDVD or iMovies, and where they all playing.

    Yeah, play some video wit that, and watch it in the small screen, it just keeps going.

    I don't see Activity Monitor anywhere. It would be nice to see Memory usage with all those Apps up and running.


    Edit: OK I see it in the dock. But still don't see it on the screen. Maybe it's really really small.

    That is dang impressive, I mean FCP, Macromedia Studio, Adobe CS, Garageband etc, he's got some pretty heavy duty apps going on there...but obviously Flash would have pushed it over the edge! I mean he wouldn't want to be accused of showing off now! :p I'm sure the Mac dance was pretty cool too.

    Looks cool but any modern computer can easily pull that off. I know because I have add about that must stuff open on my desktop and i was pushing it with doing a lot harder stuff. and it still was not complaining

    I was playing music in iTunes... not a single hiccup...

    Its one thing to open all your apps - its another to actually use them....;)

    I've had 6 major apps up and running at once on a dual 1.25 with OSX and not really suffered too much in terms of performance, continually jumping from one to the other...but I wasn't doing any rendering, then I only use that one app.

    The apps.... Lightwave Modeler, Lightwave Layout, Photoshop, Illustrator, FCP and QuickTime (Safari, too)

    Here is a new IMac showing 12 Quicktime Movies at the same time.
    All pretty smooth!
