One of the potentially painful issues that afflicts many digital producers is the weight of multiple software apps coexisting and attempting to compete with each other on a single system. Not to mention that the more active applications present on a computer the slower and less efficient it becomes.
This invariably goes triple for journalists charged with the task of regularly reviewing and testing software tools - good, bad and ugly.
In an age of production where hybridization and integrated self sufficiency (in other words needing and using a barage of tools; from video to audio, imaging to animation) is increasingly the norm this too demands computers be saturated with tools and applications of all forms and functions. The days of a system dedicated to just one creative task are over.
The problem this presents is a cluttered and inefficient workstation of software detritus.
