Will this new language do the CPU resource allocation at compile time? That kind of feature may make the system to have a predictable performance from a multi core CPU with distributed allocation of the tasks.

Who cares about Legacy software - those that are left behind.. As for this approach Parallel by default - work to make soemthing sequential is probably a good idea - since that is how most programmers are going to think. Sequences - rather than autonomous code running around. It kind of fits with someone coordinating a multitasked function all at once - all the plans are layed out with contingencies - those contingencies that can not be preplanned must have a route or path to handle them. Who to take those unplanned contingencies to is also something that needs to be set forth - some things should be done (by the person there) at the lowest level possible and others must be escalated - knowing what to escallate and to how high and to whom is a challenge for parallel processing.

Another one on the block. There have been quite a few parallel languages which are being implemented in select areas which are amenable to parallelisation but not in general computing domain. The issue with adoption is the huge wall of legacy so until that is addressed there is not much hope, nobody wants to devote expensive engineering resources to re-write those legacy software.

This grounds approach to the programming language for multi_core CPU is a welcome development as it would not have to carry any legacies that any enhancements to C++ or c# would have to worry about.

Lua, Python and Perl are not dead. In fact, a study at the Univ of Dusseldorf found that people were twice as productive in these languages than in C/C++/Java. The Linguas Franca are pretty awful. 50 years of Algol is enough.

http://parallel.cc New languages are usually dead languages. You can view them as mutant strains - interesting but unlikely to survive.

As an intermediate development step, can processes which can be proven to be free standing be carved out for parallel processing while other processes remain sequential? Perhaps algorithmic emphasis needs to be devoted to determining which subroutines can be proven to be independent and where programming checkpoints need to be introduced to ensure that no thread goes any further until all previous threads have completed and their results have been made available for subsequent calculations.
