For the next few years maybe but with core counts going up I can easily see a 512 or 1024 core machine by say 2015.. i.e. Moore's law may not apply to single tasking chips any mores but it seems to be in full force for multi-core ones... this brings me to why I tried it in the first place I was exploring weither or not FreeBSD was ready for this kind of core count (specifically the idea of a multitasking OS scheduling by allocating one process per core for core counts greater then say 64)... I am in the process of considering the design requirements for a OS I plan to do from the ground up and like to know the limits of current ones. - -- Aryeh M.
