This is a great guide, but on your analogy for the dual core processors, I think it might be better explained like this:

Think of dual core like this. There is a pile of bricks. The dual core would have the pile split into 2 smaller piles, and the have 2 "people" working to move the bricks where they needed to be moved as where a single core would have 1 "person" moving the one big pile. Therefore, the dualcore would obvisouly get it done faster.
