The thing is that in Erlang ... create processes (it doesn't have threads)
Sorry, but you are wrong. Erlang does use threads.
here's an example from Erlang Programming that creates 10000 processes (in the book they actually starting at 100000):
Yes. And the Go language proponents promote that it can do the same thing:
The Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black has so much power that Jeremy Clarkson (Top Gear) managed to sustain a power-slide for so long that he completely destroyed a brand new pair of £1,000/pair rear tyres in about 10 minutes. It was spectacular to watch; and I bet it was fun to do; but as a measure of the utility of the vehicle, it is entirely pointless!
And the same goes for both the Erlang and Go threading demos. They are entirely useless as demonstrations of anything practical or useful.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
