Third Camp:
Since both views are true:

Chris: Threads solve a large class of important problems
Marko: Threads are horribly error prone

lets have a (bondage-and-discipline) language that supports smooth mostly

Most famous recent example is Go.
More classic (and more bondage-and-discipline) are Erlang, CloudHaskell
