Since computers nowadays all have multiple cores (I just got my first multi-core computer) it looks like everything is going to have to be multi-threaded or multi process or fail to take advantage of the hardware. If it's true that "cores are the new megahertz", this is going to get kindof crazy. I mean, we might be looking at a future where everyone has a 32 core machine on their desk and beyond.
How are we, the perl community, going to address this? How do we see it affecting us? I'd love anyone's thoughts on this general question.
