Hayley Patton started this petition to Lisa Su (Runs AMD I think) and

Please put transactional memory into consumer CPUs so that we can write concurrent code without it either being hair-pullingly hard or slow

I am of begging you I don't want to lock but I cannot be bothered to put every interesting lock-free algorithm into TLA+. The Herlihy and Moss paper describes the concept, and a way to implement it. Or even one bit will do in a pinch, but please just put us concurrency primitive hackers out of our misery already!

The benefits include

  • No more deadlocks
  • Scalability goes up, which is good for the environment
  • Normies don't get afraid of concurrency (and use as*nc/aw**t)
