Default Program interaction

This is the first time I have had a noticeable interaction between mfaktc and another program. I updated to Quicken 2014 this afternoon since my old version was three years old and some of the data downloading capability was going to end (they do this every three years to force you to buy the new version).

The new version was incredibly slow. The program took 30 seconds to appear on the screen, and the data appeared in a jerky fashion. Just for fun I terminated the mfaktc instance which was sharing with the video display.

Instant and amazing difference.

I guess this is my first experience with a commercial application that makes heavy use of the GPU.
