Hi Sturla,

It has been several months now since AMP is there, I wouldn't care about it.
You also forgot about OpenAcc, the accelerator sister of OpenMP, Intel's
PBB (with TBB, IPP, ArBB that will soon make a step in Numpy's world),
OmpSS, and so many others.

I wouldn't blame MS for this, IMHO Intel does a far better job at the
moment, and we are only starting consolidation now that everyone has shown
its cards.
