Faster Chips Are Leaving Programmers in Their Dust

MonaLisa Re:Wait for the new C++ standard before you switch (573 comments)

There are a zillion thread classes for C++, I've written three myself. Just pick one and go with it, or just use pthreads directly, if you want/need to use C++. You don't have to wait for the next standard. Java's threads suck for a lot of things, particularly if you need lightweight threads. If you're using Mac OS X, the Cocoa NSThread class rocks, it's fast and easy. I don't really get what the big deal is here. People have been writing multithreaded code for a couple of decades.
