### Mathematica Personal Grid Edition

Wolfram have announced a product aimed at the new generation of quad core

computers

http://www.wolfram.com/news/personalgrid.html

This looks like a mini version of their GridMathematica product and will run

four copies of Mathematica on your computer, one as a master and three as slaves.

GridMathematica is a well designed product. The interesting question is

whether the market is there for small scale grid computing, given that some

parts of normal Mathematica (mostly numeric linear algebra) will already use

all four cores automatically.

I doubt that it exists now, but it will only grow and Wolfram is the only one

targetting multi-core technical computing at the moment.
