I'm not sure where you're getting your information, but the original GIL problem *DEFINITELY* exists on multicore Windows machines. I've had numerous participants try it in training classes and workshops they've all observed severely degraded performance for CPU-bound threads on Windows (XP, Vista, and Windows 7).
