Driving home from work, I listened to this podcast on the Design and Evolution of C++. Somewhere half way through, Ted Neward mentions the new thread library in C++0x. I found Herb Sutter's response quite amusing:
Any language from this point forward that ignores concurrency is basically not relevant for mainstream applications.
Take that C#! Maybe F# is the wave of the future? But there appears to be hope at the horizon, as the first preview of the ParallelFX extensions has been made available for download.
