FPC itself is single threaded. Your own applications can be multithreaded. 
Despite the benchmarks shown today, I believe FPC is so fast that 
transforming it into a multithreaded application isn't worth the effort at 
the moment.

Yes, of course. Linux on Opteron is what AMD big in the server market.
