The future of programming and the challenge of Multi-Core

Thorbiƶrn from Sun Sweden was at DTU today to talk about programming with a parallel aspect. There was around 60 people present.

 He talked about different kinds of CPUs and how they did concurrency, and parallelism.

 To see the the diffrence, see here: http://blogs.sun.com/yuanlin/entry/concurrency_vs_parallelism_concurrent_programming

He talked about the language Fortress http://projectfortress.sun.com/Projects/Community

which have some ability to do parallel programming easy, using symbols, known from math.

I got OpenSolaris 2008.5 install in a virtual machine on my laptop. 

I have figured out how to install apache (pfexec pkg install amp)

And I got apache up and running from the pointers given here:

Solaris in Virtual box 2.0.0 in Mac os X

 So by doing that i could install Solaris Express Dev. Edition.

More about this later.
