I'm trying to say that those people punishing their machines with a
combination of CPU and I/O intensive work while at the same time running
a GUI and big GUI applications simply SHOULD NOT expect good interactive
performance. They are getting exactly what I would expect the should
I'm also suggesting that if they demand good interactive support
ultimately then they must find some way to separate their job mix onto
at least two appropriately tuned systems.
