It's a lot more complicated than that. This is akin to thinking the phrase "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" (AKA communism) will just work (actually, you almost typed that in GPU terms, lol).

Real world reality: It's harder than it sounds, on both counts.
Communist microsoft, for the softwareland!
