write letter.. ok
Spreadsheet calc.. ok. Only gonna use one proc probably
downloading a large file.. probably fine. I do it all the time. In the
background while working.. Same as transferring files to or form one of our
servers.. also while the NLE is running.. no big deal.
If your NLE is written poorly it may burp and hiccup and complain but this
is not a big deal.
