I did read that (somebody please tell ProtonMail to get IMAP released on Linux, their JS "save" indicators are simultaneously tweaking my Asperger's and hypnotizing me--seriously I have sticky notes covering them, but not enough opacity) thanks.

You could also describe it as a flexible, multicore, general purpose (Connection Machine if interconnected in a hypercube topology) with a unified processor architecture (which in a metaphysical sense is flexible too, "switchable processor architecture").  That thought occurred to me last night as I collapsed from exhaustion.  Now add AD and LM (Lisp machine).  I'll leave it at that before I do the whole Monty Python "string marketing" skit.
