Mac OS X Running 200 Apps Keeps the Race Going

In case anybody is keeping the count in this dumb bragging race, here's an image of Mac OS X running two hundred apps at once, breaking the previous 150-app record.

The new silly mark was set on a 20-inch 2007 iMac, with a 2.4ghz Core 2 Duo and 4 Gigabytes of RAM. It took about 15 minutes to open all apps, and I guess 15 more minutes to put all the windows in Exposé mode. The reader who sent this says that he "was able to talk on video chat while opening everything, even while the video froze at some times for just a few seconds." One thing he noticed: The dock can't get beyond 100 applications.
