Addressing a crowd mostly consisting of hardware engineers, he talked about how the software world was ill-prepared to make use of the new multicore CPUs coming from Intel and AMD.

As much as I love making fun of MSFT.

This is an outright lie.

>>perhaps of they switched to a Linux microKernel<<

Linux isn't a microkernel.

Now for SMP support Windows and the software for years have been behind the curve. Now OS X on intel multi-cores will rock. As Mac workstations normally have multiple processors. The software is already coded for it.
