Hey, if you got 2 processors, you
might as well use them for somthing
usefull, like full screen kick ass

Any kind of MP support would be sweet. It would also be nice to designate which CPU different components are running on. You could run the amp and your Output, DSP, etc on the primary and then run whatever vis you want on the second.
I've been playing with trying to use Winamp to run music during VR simulations on a Dual Ghz with a high-end Oxygen dual-head vid card. EON won't use the second CPU, so it would be nice if I could run Winamp off the spare. Also, I'd like to experiment with having two simultaneous Winamps running with the same playlist, and run the same vis plugin on each video head. If I can offset the stereo video output enough I might be able to get a polarized 3D effect which would, just let me say, be sweet as hell.
To really do it right I'd probably have to write my own stereo-vid vis plugin. Ugh ... well, it would be cool. :-)

The day someone gives me a kick-ass multiprocessor machine to play with is the day wa3 starts to support multiprocessor machines. :) Until then, it won't.
Like, say, a dual p3-933. That would be acceptable. :)
