I was thinking about your posts ITT a bit more over the holidays, and I had a feeling you are basing some assumptions on Moore's law, however I think
you are missing out on another law when it comes to computation and code. Wirth's law.
I'm sure you know about it, or have heard of it, as plenty of people have talked about the need to clean up and make more efficient their code in
order to actually see performance improvements as Moore's law progresses. I have an example of it in my own living room, I have an old Apple desktop
(Macintosh LC 575) Which inspite of it's measly 33Mhz CPU and 68Mb memory, boots faster, and loads programs like it's word processor faster than my
current work laptop does with modern equivalents.
