Yay! Another voice of common sense rises up in the multicore hype arena. "The barriers are high, especially in software" - have to agree with this. The core problem all along is that multicore does not work as a silicon solution, its only half a solution. And the silicon vendors, Intel included even, have gone far to fast for the software ecosystem to keep up. I also agree that the solutions are highly fragmented at the moment, and will remain so, until some sanity arises as to where multicore truly offers value in embedded, and as the market definition narrows, the software ecosystem will get a chance to focus and then we'll start to see complete solutions, hardware+software in harmony.
