"The way in which it will be implemented however is already clearly defined and was subject to peer review by other developers. Obstacles to an efficient implementation were removed (e.g. the use of Forbid) and replaced in many OS components over the years (e.g. DOS).The foundation for SMP support was put in place, a clear picture exists what needs to be done to accomplish it and how. I'm willing to take a bet that it won't take 2 years ;)
