Hoping to inspire people to write code that can run on its multi-core processors, Intel has open sourced one of its development packages. Users of all shapes and sizes can now download the code for Intel's Threading Building Blocks (TBB) – a C++ template library that caters to the design of parallel code. By open-sourcing this …
er... a bit behind
the times are we? This is not new news....

Intel only announced this 17 hours before this article appeared. Just how fast do you want el reg to jump on things? TBB itself is fairly old, but the open sourcing of it isn't, and is interesting to those looking at threading libraries. (I find it interesting that a few days worth of Intel announcements makes this an Intel rag, when AMD simply hasn't been making recent announcements. Most PR from either side gets reported here. Go home, fanboy.)

And where do those elusive butterflies/scarlett pimpernels hang out, Ashlee? Does Intel care to give us a Lead or is IT all new fangled and entangled in NEUKlearer HyperRadioProActive String Theory in an Artifice of Myriad Delights ..... an Artificial Edifice in the Course of Construction and/or Erection?
