Unfortunately, gaming on Macs is nowhere near the level of gaming on Windows. It used to be that we could have a Mac for both Mac OS and Windows. That was cool. The setup didn’t need to be 100% equal to a Windows PC in performance, just be comparable.
Sadly, there hasn’t been a suitable desktop Mac in almost a decade (GPU, heat, etc). Now Apple is moving away from Macs even being able to run intel Windows software at all. Result: own two computers again (consoles can bite my shiny metal ass).
It would be nice if Apple at least sold a standalone display [for an affordable headless workstation-class desktop], so that when I finally can buy a new gaming PC (GPU shortages & pricing are insane), I don’t ALSO need to have TWO displays on my already-crowded desk. Guess I need to find a usable USB KVM switch, soon. Most affordable KVM switches I’ve seen are trash and the well-built ones are rarely happy to work cross-platform & USB.

What pulleys? Where will they come from and how will they get there? What will the be installed on? How would you power these pulleys? What are the cables going to be attached to? How big would the cable need to be to pull upwards of 100,000 tons without breaking? How big a diameter wheel would you need to hold that large a cable?
Drawing pretty pictures is easy. Doing it is what counts.
I hope they can just dig it out and pull it around with the tugs. I simply offered an alternative and practical IMHO alternative should they not be able to, I don't see the need to be insulting. It's just physics at the end of the day. Hey, they could use floats too, they refloated a massive cruise ship a few years back. A few inches is maybe all that's required. OK, I will shut up.

(assuming a person's eyes are far enough away that they can see the entire screen.)So it's just for bragging rights that you sell/buy an 8k monitor? ... since there's no practical advantage to it.
What am i missing?
