For me the Computing sphere is littered with Mafia style tactics where a dominant player locks out the competition stifling innovation and real competition and choice for the end user.
Be it Microsoft with their dodgy OEM install deals destroying better OS alternatives from getting pre-installed on configured computer systems i.e. BeOS in the 90's and Linux to Intel and Nvidia screwing over their competitors doing the same to AMD and VIA.
Unfortunately Corporations in the West act like Psychopaths and without a strong body politic to police their shady behaviour, humanity is held back technologically. We see this in VR also with Oculus and Vive who release tech that captures the market and then sits on it milking the most they can. It is the reason when I saw what PIMAX was doing with their kickstarter and the 8K, I became a backer.
Sure it has been a bumpy ride for the 8K but as an informed consumer and one who like to see technological progress, I have been happy to show support for what they are doing.
Simulations like Il2 BoX series and DCS can be very CPU limited due to their use of DirectX 11 and all the AI/Physics modelling computation they demand. I know in the BoS series AI aircraft use the same Flight Model as the player and so when you enter a battle with many aircraft involved especially with twin engined aircraft, your frames drop considerably. Not that I complain as I remember the UFO behaviour of AI flight models in the original Il2 series and I would never want a return to that. Just the need for AI / Physics modelling to be better distributed over multi core CPU's.
If you guys are interesting in OS tech, check out Haiku-OS which is the free successor to BeOS. An os that in the late 90's that was doing multiple video streams, software 3D and audio simultaneously without slowing down and or dropping frames on standard PC hardware. The OS was designed from the ground up for Media use and put Windows 9x and NT variants as well as Mac to shame. Haiku OS is an Open rewrite of BeOS which has been in development for 10 years by a small group of dedicated programmers and they have just released their Beta.
