There are various event loops:

* Application.Run
* ShowModal makes a loop too
* ProcessMessages has a short lived loop

And user code can also start their own loops by using ProcessMessages

I wouldn't call those loops "event queues", because they don't
implement any kind of queues, they process all events which are
obtained immediately. The events are not stored in queues. The queue
itself is inside the backend library, for example Windows API, X11,
