First, dual-G5 machines are still widely used. They work fine.
More to the point, when 32-core PPCs are several times faster than 32-core x86es, you will naturally become more interested in how to program them reliably. Those of us already obliged to make our code work on such machines, or who have taken the trouble to be prepared, will have had a lot of practice.
