They mentioned it publicly so i thought i share the news. Mentioned in this blog:
I had the chance to talk to MySpace architects about the CCR a while back (after i found out they where using it), and its exciting to see it applied in other commercial and challenging domains, outside robotics. From what i understood its used very heavily
Just fyi, we are always interested in hearing from anyone using CCR?DSS outside robotics, so feel free to ping us/post about your experience/usage scenarios.
Monday, May 21, 2007 2:48 PMI am somewhat confused that MySpace is using the CCR. I was under the impression that you could not use the CCR for commercial purposes. What exactly is the licensing situation?

Hi George, is it possible to have more details about what they use the CCR for ?
In the blog page it's just mentioned, but they don't explain what they use for ...

You can use the CCR for commercial purposes, and DSS and anything we release in MSRS. There is just a runtime fee (2$ per deployment) as explained in our commercial license. Right now, you get 200 runtime licenses, with one dev license, for commercial use (Dev license is $399)
Wednesday, May 23, 2007 7:01 PMits up to MySpace to release that information, if they want to. We cant disclose it.

CCR > *
I doubt MySpace has any intention of releasing implementation details. And I have no authority to publicly state whether or not MySpace uses the CCR (regardless of what anyone else claims).
Personally, however, I think CCR is probably one of the better API advances in the realm of multi-processing/parallelism. I can't think of another concurrency solution that yields the kind of performance and control I see in the CCR.
Nice work, very nice indeed!
I hope the CCR gets rolled into the BCL itself one-day, since it's something that has a wide range of applicability outside of robotics, especially when you're talking about large scale multi-processing or -highly- performant message routing. I can accept, though, that being part of the MSRS releases allows for a shorter dev-cycle, which is better for those of us who are actively using it and want to see it improved at a faster rate than the rest of the .NET Framework.
Anyway, enough shameless promotion from me if you're unsure about using the CCR for your own solutions, I can't possibily say enough good about it.
It's well worth your time.
