Technically, that's a flawed understanding. It's not a percentage, it's a ratio. So if it's set to 50 and nothing else is running, then it's getting 50 of 50 available views. But if it's set to 50 and something else is running at 25, it's getting 50 of 75 available views. So you shouldn't use that to judge intent. --Philippe 17:46, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
