This particular implementation is, yes. It sounds like they're taking
the same path with AMP as they took with PPL -- a modern C++
interface, completely platform agnostic. Intel's Thread Building
Blocks provides a compatible cross-platform implementation. If that's
truly the case with AMP, then this could end up being pretty cool.
Of course I haven't seen it yet... I can hope.
