"Almost all systems sold nowadays have at least a
dual-core CPU, even triple- or quad-cores are getting cheaper and
getting standard in the near future. But how to utilize your shiny
x-core to it's full potential, with applications that are only
utilizing one core ? With Linux, which has strong multitasking
capabilities as all unixoid operating systems, there is an easy
possibility to parallelize tasks which are normally only using one
core of an x-core CPU.
