Poll time: How many apps are you running?

— 12:25 PM on April 6, 2005

We've whipped up a new poll for your voting pleasure, but before we get into that, let's have a look at the results of our last poll on the most exciting development. 43% of voters consider dual-core CPUs the most exciting new development, followed by 22% favoring the Cell processor, and 19% enamored with 64-bit computing. Continued GPU progress and Pentium M-based desktop systems bring up the rear with 9% and 8%, respectively.

Since dual-core CPUs are such a popular new development, our latest poll takes on multi-tasking.

How many programs do you have running right now?
Are your system tray and taskbar overflowing with application icons, or do you prefer to only do a couple of things at a time? Let us know.
Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
