4,096 ought to be enough for anybody

Other than pointing out that the fault lies primarily with how Adobe’s programmers don’t know how to do anything efficiently on non-Windows platforms except crash the browser, I can personally verify that today’s xkcd is 100% accurate. Including the mouse-over text, and the fact that the kernel patch mentioned in the comic indeed exists.

  1. Is 4096 cores enough to give Wallace a chance at the Mario AI competition?

  2. Had I known about that earlier, I might’ve tried putting something together for it. It’d have to be done from scratch using their framework, but to be honest I never got around to implemented anything terribly sophisticated in Wallace anyway.
