I have now connected and synced two Macs using Ableton Link. Works well. This is the way to go: grid computing.
Moore's Law is a crock. It is a "law" based on a trend that occurred several years in a row (and it required transistors to be easily shrunk to achieve, which they were for some time). But as a predictor at this point it is hardly relevant. Transistor sizes are getting so small that improvements require a lot more extra consideration now than just "let's shrink it more" like it used to be when that 'law' was applicable.
