Miguel de Icaza recently blogged about the addition of Parallel Extensions to the Mono family.
“For a while I wanted to blog about the open source implementation of the Parallel Extensions for Mono that Jeremie Laval has been working on. Jeremie is one of our mentored students in the 2008 Google Summer of Code. Dual CPU laptops are becoming the norm; quad-core computers are now very affordable, and eight CPU machines are routinely purchased as developer workstations. The Parallel Extension API makes it easy to prepare your software to run on multi processor machines by providing constructs that take care of distributing the work to various CPUs based on the computer load and the number of processors available.”
