Aren't you thinking about Parallellism?
In computer science, concurrency is a property of systems which
consist of computations that execute overlapped in time
Parallel computing is the simultaneous execution of the same task (split
up and specially adapted) on multiple processors in order to obtain
This agrees with what I have read in many texts on the subjects.
I am searching for programmers who are good at least in
(Haskell || ML) && (Linux || FreeBSD || math)
