I thought this would be of interest to the Haskell community:
"The ever-growing popularity of small multiprocessors is exposing
more programmers to parallel hardware. More tools to spot correctness
and performance problems are becoming available (e.g., thread
checkers8 and performance debuggers9). Also, a few expert programmers
can write efficient threaded code that is in turn leveraged by many
others. Fast-locking and thread-efficient memory allocation libraries
are good examples of programming work that is highly leveraged."
Viva le STM!
