Sure. 100% is maxed out. That's the point of applications like P95 - take advantage of all spare cycles that would otherwise have been wasted and do some useful computations.

Depends. If the application that is using 100% is a "high priority" task, then all the lower priority ones have to wait around. However, P95 registers itself as a low priority (the lowest priority, in fact), and so all normal applications can work without much issue. P95 will yield (or rather, the Operating System will make it yield) to everything else as needed.

Have you noticed any difficulty in running any other application or general usage of the system?
