New Mac Pro With 8 Cores

Mac Pro

Amazing. Expensive. Freakish.

If I could afford one (I have a Dual G5 and a MacbookPro) why would I buy it? Developing software still takes horsepower so I could argue it would makes me work faster. But practical thoughts aside, like all advances in hardware that I have seen through the years (my first computer was a 1Mhz 6502) the uses eventually catch up to the specs.

Might be time to learn Haskell or Clean or Erlang...
