Rust-Written Redox OS Booting The 128-Thread AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X
While one of the fundamentals of the Rust programming language is on offering safe concurrency, Redox OS itself had a multi-core issue until this week when it was sorted out by lead Redox OS developer (and System76 engineer) Jeremy Soller.
He in turn verified the working multi-core system by using a System76 Thelio Major with the stunning Threadripper 3990X.
