Parallel Extensions to the .NET Framework (ParallelFX)

The closing general session of TechEd Europe this year was "The irrestible forces meet the moveable objects" from Pat Helland and it talked about how economic and technological forces will impact the way that we develop applications.

One of these technological forces is the shift to multi and many core processors.
