Multi-tasking?

I read that the Ybox2 can only run 1 widget at a time.
With a multi-core processor I'd expect it to be able to run as my programs
as you have cores.

Whats the deal?

It isn't quite a simple as a widget-per-cog. There are several threads of execution in a single widget. But really, cogs aren't the issue: the big issue is memory. There is only 32kb of hub RAM to work with!
