Among all the criticisms of the Bulldozer, I noticed one discussion about Windows 7 treating the one-and-a-half core modules as two cores, and the result is like trying to pass 8 cans of spaghetti throught the eyes of a 6 needles.
So now I am curious: will linux have the same problem? Since server versions of Bulldozer will probably be running Linux, I presume somebody like Oracle has patched it to handle Bulldozers.
Which distros have announced that they are Bulldozer-friendly?
