Support Multiple Core CPU's

    Currently wordpress doesn't support multiple core CPU's. PHP, which wordpress is built using doesn't support multiple core CPU's either, but there is a way around that which can be found here:

    http://www.alternateinterior.com/2007/05/multi-threading-strategies-in-php.html

    All new CPU's have multiple cores like intel's quad core CPU which has 4
    cores and some motherboards have two CPU sockets so 2 quad core CPU's
    would mean there would be 8 cores.

    WordPress should support multiple core CPU's because it will mean people won't need to have as many servers in their cluster, because alot of CPU power is being wasted because wordpress doesn't support
    multiple core CPU's.

    So please wordpress, the next version of wordpress should support multiple core CPU's. If you have to work with the mysql and apache
    teams with this then please do it.

    Can you pass on my feature request to the WordPress development team?

    Thanks

    This is impossible.

    Web Applications are multi-threaded by nature, Every request is served by a different thread/process.

    Due to PHP's design, Having 2 threads running in the one request is incredibly difficult, and for WordPress, gains no benefit, as most tasks are completed in milliseconds, and relies on other tasks to complete first. PHP is a single-threaded proceedural language, not a EventDriven/Threaded language.
