That wasn't a criticism on my part -- I really want to master Tachyon.
I was recently in a discussion with a guy who builds movie props (for major blockbusters that you've probably seen). After setting him straight on what the Propeller is, he got very excited and at one point in our conversation mentioned it would be cool if he could program it in Forth. "You can!" I exclaimed, and told him the little I understand about Tachyon.
The most humorous part of our conversation was when he told me in several cases he had to link three or four of his little PIC boards together, and it was a big headache. I responded with, "So you're not against multi-core, you'd rather just do it the hard way!" Thankfully, my jest elicited the laugh I had hoped for, and I think in future he will be using the Propeller. I designed a smallish (5cm x 5cm) version of my Propeller Platform that I'm hoping will strike his fancy.
