Recently we discussed Haskell and especially types in Russian part of LiveJournal and of course we talk about STM.
My opponent gave me that link: http://logicaloptimizer.blogspot.com/2010/06/so-microsofts-experiments-with-software.html It says that performance with STM in Microsoft Research was more than horrible. I failed to find convincing counter-evidence on the web. Not for Haskell, even for Java/C#/C++. So I asking Haskell-cafe for clarification. Do anyone here have an experience with STM in computing-intensive tasks? Did it help there? What are the possible reasons for STM failure in MR? _______________________________________________ Haskell-Cafe mailing list Haskell-Cafe@haskell.org http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-cafe
