Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog


Everything I keep reading and hearing about repeats the theme that threads are an accident that came from people trying to "perfect" processes and thus making them too slow. Threading is way too hard and there are no indications that it will continue to be anything but a dead end. Other forms of concurrency, especially ones that are more OO and that remove problems like deadlock and race conditions, are much more preferable.
