Clueless Journalists - or: ZDNet about the 80 core prototype

Sometimes journalists are really narrowminded: Hypeing an technology , that won´t deliver products the next several years. Of course, massive multicores are the future. But not in the touted 5 years. Last year, this year, next year. Niagara, Niagara II, Rock, Victoria Falls. You can speak to your friendly Sun Sales rep and order a Niagara-based system. Virtualisation? Already there. In Solaris. Dear Mr. Windley, look over the edge of your plate before sounding the fanfares for a useless technology demonstrator when others have already buyable products out there. And don´t try to tell your readers, that Intel now solved the problems of the datacenter owners.
