But that's the point isn't it: 1. Processes are too heavyweight, invent threads. 2. We have masses of cores, let's map threads to cores via the kernel. 3. Processes and threads are too heavyweight, invent lightweight threads (aka fibres, sort of). It could be argued that it is all just co-routines underneath, but I think that would be missing the point that we have 55 years more experience of doing these things since that single processor operating system model was created. We really should be doing this all a lot better these days. -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
