General Development The proposed new standard for the C++ programming language, C++0x, has reached feature completeness. "This is 'it', feature-complete C++0x, including the major feature of 'concepts' which had its own extensive set of papers for language and library extensions (if you get the impression that concepts is a big feature, well, it is indeed easily the biggest addition we made in C++0x)."

That's a pretty broad statement.
I've done programming with threads in C++, Java and even Python. Some of it could have been done in Erlang and other things I wouldn't dream of doing in Erlang.

If I concurrency was only about getting the best performance out of your machine at any cost, then you might be right, but there are lots of situations where it's just not worth it to use a tool like Erlang.

Yes, indeed. I did of course not mean the obvious; attempting to write the next Crytek engine in Erlang just to be able to peak all your cores, and then let it borrow some from your friends as your machine just isn't cutting it. For some things, there simply is no replacement for C++. The same goes for Erlang.
