Let's start a list...

...of things we know are optimized for SMT. I'm willing to bet any hypervisor is. That means KVM, VirtualBox, Xen, and VMWare. I am almost positive that gcc would be on the list.

What about:

Python?

Java?

HTTP servers?

Databases?

Please add a reply if you know for sure about anything that is optimized for SMT so people can be ready if needs be.
