Was doing some reflecting on past interesting videos and "Wolfram Schulte" came up a couple of times in regards to comments he made of future "parallelism" work (was from a SPUR) video in 2010 ( Inside SPUR - A Trace-Based JIT Compiler for CIL )

So checking out his research page seems like in the July 2012 there are 2 recent updates

 

1. Waiting for Godot: The Right Language Abstractions for Parallel Programming Should be Here Soon

2. Maine: A Library for Data Parallel Finite Automata

 

Seems like MS may have cracked how to deliver 'parallelism', it was hinted as far back as 2009/2010 and only now being realized (in felix's uncovered paper )

Interesting times ahead ...
