From one of Val's responses to a question asked about the KHB: Synthesis article:
My personal opinion is that lock-free algorithms are not a good generic synchronization
technique, and are definitely very very complex and difficult to understand. However, in
certain specific cases, lock-free can be simple, elegant, and a huge performance advantage
over traditional approaches.
