That's both really funny and really sad at the same time.

Reminds me of this recent article:

Where Have All The Cycles Gone?

"Computers are getting faster all the time, or so they tell us. But, in 
fact, the user experience of performance hasn't improved much over the 
past 15 years."


Maybe our PC's are just filling up with too much fat and not so 
productive software. Of course the overhead of Anti-virus software 
scaning away doesn't help that much either.
