Why OpenCAPI is a declaration of interconnect fabric war

Which is great if you can parallelise(sp?) your workload into 400 parts.

I love the idea and I think there is a lot of money "wasted" on vmware (for functionality which should be part of the OS) and cpu cycles wasted on hypervisors.

I'm hoping someone will come up with a more dynamic process migration and resource allocation. I'd like to see more management and less emulation and I suspect it needs to be open source because per-socket/core licensing leads to over-consolidation and latency. Excellent hardware designs will always fail if the software costs blow them out of the water and proprietary software hasn't got a handle on ARM licensing.
