    Please give comparison and pro and con of Microsoft Accelerator (for GPU) vs Microsoft Concurrency & Coordination Runtime and Decentralized Software Services (CCR and DSS)Toolkit? Is both the same thing?

    Did you read the information on the sites you linked to in your question?? The answer is right there....

     

    No, they are not the same... Accelerator is a data-parallel computation library that targets GPU (it's designed for parallel processing of large data arrays). CCR/DSS is a general purpose managed distributed coordination "platform" (concurrency is a side effect; the art is in the coordination primitives and port-based programming abstractions).

    Accelerator project seems to be too outdated. Charles, fresh interview would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
