    Great.  Thanks again Joe, Igor, and Charles.
    Forcing tasks (i.e. Charles question) on many cores explicitly actually has a simple use case.  Correctness debugging.  If my code is tricky in terms of the delegate bodies, I may want to ensure all tasks perform on different Procs, even if the library feels 1 thread is enouph.  Because your race bugs will not show up using 1 proc or even 1 thread passed around on many procs.

    Despite difficult theme of parallel algorithm computing, this talk delivered developers friendly knowledge of parallel data management. Supercomputing database language parsers and engines may have this I/O capability, and .NET languages are bound to constitute parallel processing algorithms. For developers business investment, given Parallel language and processors should have to expose extensibility points where .NET developers consider .NET Remoting and Web Services as an area of distributed computing and extensible execution stack to include parallel.

    Likewise Windows kernel level thread context management, PLINQ may supply fine granular data access management for managed Threads, on the other hand Windows Clustering and Virtualization may take up supervisor on clustering nodes, and Web Farm and Data Grid may do load balancer similarly.

    Development partners should be thankful for fine logical explanation of new ideas PLINQ.

    Thanks for this video guys! Smiley

    Good video. Too short apparently to cover the subject deep enough Smiley
    General suggestion to the PLINQ team - please do provide programmers with extra knobs and switches to fine tune parallel execution flow. 
    Based on personal experience with SQL optimizers including the parallel ones, out of five more or less complex queries one would need a hint to run correctly.
    I wouldn't expect PLINQ be any different in this regard, especially considering that it will work on data that won't have any statistics associated with them.
