doubling number of cores every 1.5 years, we should see 1000-core
monsters just next decade. so, i believe that next decade we will see
the next big language shift and it will be shift toward FP languages.
but Erlang still has more chances - Haskell is too complex, too
slow and not advertised as multithreading language as wide as Erlang was

just now, MS pushes F#. waiting for Sun :)
