That seems a very strange way of doing it to me - to report the *idle* 
percentage, instead of how *busy* the system is.

I believe people generally think of disks as "how full?", memory as "how much 
used?", network bandwidth as "how much data?" and CPUs as "how busy?"

Can anyone explain why it was chosen to report "percentage idle"?
