Brainy Linux developers not up to the challenge

"Government Computer News tells us that Intel Director Jim Held doesn't think Linux kernal developers are interested, or ready, to support multi-core processors, "They (Linux devs) weren't so sure of how the community would latch on to large-scale chip multi-processing." He continues, "Microsoft is very much engaged in planning of this future of many-core," and avers that "Microsoft recognizes the importance of parallelism," which left-handedly suggests that Linux developers aren't. While GCN is no fount of cutting edged news, one would think a certain objectivity would be adopted. No attempt was made to develop a story here, and I doubt the one they are promoting exists."
