Question for those of you who have the game:

How does it perform in a window? For example, if you've got the game running and you're listening to Internet radio in the background? Anybody tried it?

P.S. I mean, on a relatively hot machine - mine's a 3.2

I try not to multi-task while actually doing a turn (running or inputting orders). My machine is below the specs - and although I have tons of RAM and video Memory I don't want to push my luck.. I only have a 500 MHz - ask Rob - he does it all the time on his machine..

It runs fine multitasking as long as you don't open too much. I would just avoid minimizing it while the turn is running. Giving orders it's fine but while it's running some weird things can happen graphically. Switching between programs doesn't cause as much as a problem although it may take awhile once you click it to get it to be active again and the screen may redraw slowly. I only switch around while giving orders. Once I execute the turn i leave it alone.
