Performance scaling? Sure, shared memory doesn't scale to the largest jobs. For that you need methods that cross machines. Those methods don't scale to the smallest latencies. For that you need shared memory.
Still, I agree. Threading is too much the method of fashion more because everyone is doing it than technical merit. Of course everyone doing it means you get to use libraries other people wrote and spend less time swimming up stream.
