+ - Stratagey for dealing with multithreading?

Submitted by Watson Ladd
Watson Ladd (955755) writes "With all major microprocessor manufactures choosing to go multicore rather then cranking up clock speeds getting performance gains will be a software problem. If applications aren't using multiple threads, they don't get a performance boost. But multithreading is a pain to deal with. So what is your strategy for writing multithreaded code? Is it join calculus, software transactional memory,non-interacting threads,rendezvouses,actors, or the Real Programmers choice of mutex and condition variables? Which do think will be the dominant technique over the next 30+ years?"
