    77Suspending a program you were working in and sending it to your laptop, working in it while traveling then sending it back automatically to your desktop  once you got home would be a wicked cool feature. Though obviously it would requite alot of infrastructure that doesn't exist right now (syncronized filesystems and probably some IPC related wrangling etc.. ).

     9While it may be a few years off the technology exists and I wouldn't be a bit supprised if laptops of the future shipped with some ammount of non volatile ram, attached to PCIE or directly to DDR4/5 etc... that's already a thing in the enterprise space and it will likely eventually trickle down. So instead of saving to disk you just freeze the applcation perhaps compress it and move it into the non volatile area. On unsuspend you'd just reverse te process etc..

    911I went down the rabbit hole here a bit but hopefully that fires up people's imaginations...
