Yep that is why I had never bothered in the past, though something like 
that could be very useful to me so that I can free up desktop space 
elsewhere.  I am actually looking at replaceing my single core processor 
with twin dual core processors, and as it is it does take a little bit 
for me to use up most of my processor(But I still do it;) so I can 
probably afford the cycles if it helps my workflow.

That and I already have a NVidia card and dont have a problem using the 
binary blob;)  Though I am safely staying out of this conversation for 
the time being, Lee and I already discussed viewpoints on this once in 
recent past, so no need for me to repeat it at the moment I dont think.
