Two remarks:
1 - this puts Richard's argument to center stage that those who don't  
get concurrency will be out of business.
2 - Intel also slipped in info with these announcements that these  
new multi-core chips will require embedded memory and/or embedded  
memory controllers.  Sounds like AMD is already about 4 years ahead  
of Intel on this front!!!

...and don't expect Word to get any faster, less bloated or more  
secure...
