Solaris is the answer?
Sun have Solaris working on the 32 "core" Niagara (depending on how you count; 8 4-way cores)
See http://www.sun.com/processors/UltraSPARC-T1/ - outstanding.
More within my price range is a dual socket-f athlon board with 2 dual core cpus for now, ready to go to 2 quad core.
From a video presentation by Bill Moore on ZFS (see http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/zfs_learning_center.jsp ) I get the impression Sun have been thinking about concurrency for some time in their kernel.
I'm waiting till www.gnusolaris.com stops being alpha and then I should have most of debians tools and the SunOS kernel.
Erlang is the answer?
Very interesting, I'm certainly getting involved.
Re: Market Leaders
Thing is I dont think there is any restriction on saying
A market leader in X ("A" being the weasel word here)
One of the best X in the galaxy.
I am one of the sexiest men in Britain for sure, perhaps the 20 millionth.
Google and Apple
They stopped me saying something along the lines of
"compatible with Windows/Apple/Linux"
because of the word Apple.
Why only protect apple?
This book may be worthwhile
I stumbled across this the other day
Write Great Code Volume I: Understanding the Machine
Write Great Code, Volume II: Thinking Low-Level, Writing High-Level
Cant give a full blown recommendation as I'm just starting as a programmer.
Don't forget Wine
works pretty well in linux, may be worth a look.
