The linked article mentions the Mill CPU architecture just once, in a sentence so vague that I cannot honestly tell what the author believes to be true about the Mill:

BTW, this is a major reason I’m skeptical of the Mill architecture. Putting aside arguments about whether or not they’ll live up to their performance claims and that every chip startup I can think of failed to hit their power/performance targets, being technically excellent isn’t, in and of itself, a business model.

The first word of the above quote is such a vague reference (the previous paragraphs were about memory barriers and what is/isn’t guaranteed on multiprocessor systems), that I cannot tell what the author is trying to say about the Mill. Has anyone else read the linked article, and better understood what the author was trying to convey?
