I had never run any code on any server and I do not know how it is done. I always run my code on my laptop and I have 2 physical cores .So when ever my application run slow, I try to use threads and make it run faster. I would like to know if pyston automatically parallelize the code for me? If it does then I do not have the over head of parallelizing my code, and debugging becomes simpler
Do people in Dropbox use threads in their code to make use of all the cores ?

As I understand, no, Pyston does not automatically parallelize the code for you.
Really, nothing does.

Yeah, we don't really do that :/
I think our idea would be more to be compatible with another project that did that
But I'm not aware of any for Python

For Python, I think PyParallel is the most interesting effort.
