I have posted a comment:
"It is not true that concurrency forces people
to think in ways that are unnatural.
Conventional programming languages approach
concurrency in a way that is unintuitive, but
that's a completely different story.
Erlang (http://www.erlang.org) has been used for
over a decade in commercial products with lots of
concurrency, and we have lots of evidence that
the programming model is both intuitive and safe,
in fact more so that object-oriented design.
We are eagerly awaiting multi-core chips, as they
offer us a perfectly natural way to scale up the
capacity of our products.
