Response to: classic applications perform marvelous

I cannot confirm that classic constantly consumes cpu power.

If you do not run applications (exept a cpu monitor) and let the hands from your keyboard my cpu usage goes down to only a few percent with classic running.

The only flaw I found is that classic sometimes (very rarely) hangs and then consumes 100% of cpu. This is surely a bug.
