In case you haven't noticed yet the new issue of MSDN magazine is available online. This issue focuses on multi-threading and parallel programming and has very interesting articles on that topic.

The content is great - especially for developers that are interested in learning how to make the switch from sequential to parallel (multi threaded) programming.
