What, so you're not going to try proving me wrong anymore? Already got bored?

Also, I wouldn't say the two of us loading the forums a couple dozen times total should increase revenue that much. ...

No... we never really clarified that. But even if I were, that's not your problem.

OpenCL and CUDA make for relatively easy programming. Sure, GPUs might not run anything you want, but they'll run anything that they can actually take advantage of.

If it can't ever run just any calculation you want, it doesn't have enough of a wide-spread use to be of interest to a wide server market. But for argument's sake if you could make it run any...

Agreed. And don't forget - if you have to resort to uninstalling games you want to play again, you'll have to re-download them. 50GB+ for a single game is a lot of data you have to deal with. Even...
