Microsoft is addressing the Parallel Computing topic explicitly, and compares this kind of shift with other milestones in the world of computing like graphical user interfaces or the internet. A whitepaper called “The Manycore Shift” is available on the company’s web site outlining Microsoft’s Parallel Computing Initiative. From my point of view, this comparison is correct and the need to emphasize and address this subject is overdue and should lead to results quickly, especially for mainstream development. Exciting times!
