Joel,

Do you really think that software-based trading systems would survive
in the near future? Honestly, specifically accelerated hardware
solutions (most probably FPGA-based) should win the battle. This
discussion reminded me what  Marc Battyani (you surely know him as the
Lisp expert) is doing right now in http://www.hpcplatform.com/ - it's
the compiler for FPGA accelerators, mostly targeted to serve financial
market's needs. Now it can look as a far perspective, but... it's so
typical for IT techs - most of them looked unobvious or unproductive
just a few years ago.

Sincerely,

--Victor
