I just spent a mind boggling few minutes reading this article on the "Cell" architecture patented by Sony / Toshiba /IBM. The authors opinion is that here is the potential replacement for the "Wintel" architecture that currently dominates.
I think this is relevant because OO and distributed processing oriented languages such as Java would be good abstractions for programming in the "Cell" environment.
