The problem with STM: your languages still suck » Enfranchised Mind
Software Transactional Memory works GREAT in Haskell, but it's just never going to work in Java, C, and such because they are too full of side effects -- it's just not a good match for the behavior of STM. STM is the best of possible solutions to concurrent programming (I don't think I agree with that!), so programming languages will have to change.
