I found the following paragraph humorous:

"A key component that needs further development is the threading model
used by the system kernel, Binstock said. Multithreading is crucial to
running an enterprise database. Without it, a database would have to
handle every data query as it comes in, keeping all other queries
waiting in queue, since the system would be incapable of parallel
processing."


Absolutely. Multi-threaded OSs are a lot younger than enterprise-
level multi-user databases...
