As the cost of hardware decreases, it becomes attractive to interconnect multiple processors to form a powerful, cost-effective computer. The end product provided to users, however, is a combination of hardware and software. Because the cost of software development and maintenance dominates the cost of a deliverable system, cheaper hardware, which results in more expensive software, is not cost-effective. For an architecture to be cost-effective, programmers must be able to progrmn it… CONTINUE READING
