Eye Candy - not very useful

I don't see how this allows someone to accomplish any more than without these advances. It justs sucks up graphics card power for eye candy. Wouldn't most people rather use their hardware to get work done or at least play games than suck all the power out of the computer for their desktop.

re: eye candy

Believe it or not, there is more to life than getting work done... but since I have to spend a large proportion of my time at work, I would prefer my working environment to be as attractive as possible, including the desktop.
