"I believe that we need something big and new every four years or so." – Jen Hsun Huang

Nvidia has been planning to be in the super computer business for the past three years.

The company has had stellar growth since the internet melt down in 2001, and it has come to dominate almost every market it has entered, but Nvidia is now facing limited growth opportunities in its classical markets and new competition.

WHY don't u overthrow Microsoft windows and make a much more efficient and faster 3d operating system

instead of ms paint, nvidia molding

instead of ms word, nvidia chat

instead of internet explorer, 3d web pages

instead of a mouse, use track movements in 3d space using cameras

so much sh!t people aren't doing, yet the technology is out there

That would give them an inroad like they never had before.
