I would like to see performance tests and clear results on that,
before I believe it! There are so many apps out there (and more every
day) that use multiple thread. Yes the threading implementation in
Delphi/Free Pascal is not perfect, but it's a damn site better than
clunky OnIdle event handlers and external processes and pipes etc. to
try and achieve the same task as a simple thread would do.
