    Because the high-speed operations that are done by systems that use the cell processors aren't very useful when running common desktop applications.   There is almost no use for high-speed floating-point operations when compared to the volume of other non-floating-point operations. Desktop OSs and applications have much more important things that they need to do.   And there isn't "support for running multiple OSs". It's more like there are a few OSs that have been ported (through very difficult processes) to run on cell processors, but few can run well. The OSs that have been ported generally aren't widely used for desktop tasks.   And almost no applications developers can spend the time needed to port their applications, and essentially none can give the effort needed to make their applications run well. Having an OS with no useful business apps doesn't sell well in today's business market.   Tom
