Hey,

I just went throught sutter article titled Break Amdahl's law and
subtitled Herb fought the law--Amdahl's Law, that is--and Herb won-DDJ.
After reading this article I found no much information than an
explanation to Amdahl's law and Gustafson's law. I wonder why Dr Dobbs
Journal still tells Herb fought with some kind of law and won. If
someone has ever tried to break the Amdahl's law it is Gustafson. And
even Gustafson named his paper "Reevaluating Amdahl's Law".
