It isn't so, Andreas. Everytime you fire up your wordprocessor in
graphics mode, you're computing away. (Otherwise I wouldn't be getting
a math coprocessor for my PC at work.) :-)

And by the way, about OS/2... If you have the machine for it (memory,
memory, memory) and have someone to ask when things go wrong, it's
really nice. I've had Windows on several machines (even bought it
once!) and never enjoyed using it anywhere near as much as I do OS/2.
