I think that's one side of the argument though.  The super high end
systems of today are the wrist watches of tomorrow.  If we don't move
the technology forward (which I think is what some are saying is why
we need to move to threading) we will be doing little more than
building a server for those watches while something that chose to
"grow with the times" will be powering tomorrows super high end

At least that's my impression from over here with the rest of the
sheep hoping something good comes out of this discussion :D
