Erlang and OpenFlow Together At Last 93

New submitter SIGSTOP writes "The LINC [OpenFlow 1.2 software-based] switch has now been released as commercial friendly open source through the FlowForwarding.org community website, encouraging users and vendors to use LINC and contribute to its development. The initial LINC implementation focuses on correctness and feature compliance. Through an abstraction layer, specialized network hardware drivers can be easily interfaced to LINC. It has been implemented in Erlang, the concurrent soft-real time programming language invented by Ericsson to develop their next generation networks."

    Functional languages are only a nightmare if you are too dumb.

    And just like manual memory management is a clamp on the foot for modularity in a single-threaded environment, manual locking and mutexes is an additional clamp on the foot for modularity in the multithreaded realm.

    Erlang's actor model is an attempt to enable the production of modular concurrent communication software, just as Java's garbage collection model is an attempt to enable the production of modular business data software.

If bankers can count, how come they have eight windows and only four tellers?
