Herb Sutter advocates new languages for concurrency

I agree with Herb on that one and on other issues. Here are two seminal documents from Herb.

http://www.gotw.ca/publications/concurrency-ddj.htm - Updated version of The free lunch is over article.

http://irbseminars.intel-research.net/HerbSutter.pdf - Slides of Herb's presentation at Intel Research, Berkeley, California, September 25, 2006.

TODO here summary of Herb's views.

Herb is a C++ guru currently working on general concurrency issues, including a project at Microsoft. His distinguishing argument is for a gradual evolution of programming languages and techniques (IDEs, APIs) towards easier concurrent program development.
