Which everyday-use software can I get to fully benefit from dual-core technology? aka Which are multi-threaded?
I was wondering if there were any everyday-use software out there that were better than others at using both processors.. By everyday-use, I mean software like browsers (firefox), multimedia players (rhythmbox, amarock), office suites (open office), file explorers (nautilus), etc. Do these software even use both my cores or is one of them just sleeping? In other words, which everyday-use software are multi-threaded and can benefit from having a dual core even if they are the only software running?
