instead of going about it top-down and presuming the applications must be changed how can people change the OS to account for non-multithreading applications?
Surely the bigger point is however, the OS simply *has* to change and advance and if there are applications right now that are important like Photodesk and Easiwriter that people depend upon and the authors know this then they have the incentive to change them.
If they're not used these applications (like games now for example) will just have to slip below the radar until some system of emulation is devised (which with ever faster processors shouldn't be that hard). If people,are that desperate for an application which can't be updated to multi-threading or whatever in the short-term then there are still a variety of other options: A9, 2nd hand Iyonix, VRPC.
