Cringely says no apps for multicores in 2007
"5) AMD and Intel continue to beat the crap out of each other with customers gaining but wondering why there is no software that supports those new 8-way processors, as both compilers and third-party developers fail to keep up."Unfortunately, he doen't mention ideas for solutions. Nevertheless, realizing that we have a problem would help us towards the solution.
Cringely has not predicted a wave of bugs appearing in old applications when people start using multicore chips. I wonder if he is aware of this possible future type of events.
