how about 8MB of RAM and 8MB of ROM do people worry about this ?
they need too its what phones run
(e.g. I dont see people doing things like XIP as much as people worry about no. of threads )
and can someone please sort out clustering...
2 best solutions I can see are
being able to move process's over the wire( network or within the local system for mem
locality and resource util)
doing the message thing ( MPI etc )
as more and more SMP systems come about the locking is going to turn into a solaris
nightmare unless people do somthing soon. having a kernel run on each proc or quad rather
than 1 kernel is a much better way I think... Having a solution in mainline kernel would help
things and I belive it's better to have both of these solutions.
