Sorry for nit picking, I just wanted to point out, because it's not obvious from your description, that in fact threads have absolutely nothing to do with processor cores. They are a feature of the operating system, and they have been used on single-core processors long before this multiple core craze. Microcontrollers usually don't have them, because you usually program them on the bare metal and not use any operating system. However, you can use one of the available rudimentary operating systems, like RTOS, and then you do have threads available. You could also program them yourself, of course.

Hey Deshipu,

Not sure how else you could interpret

Now days most PCs have multiple cores and in object oriented programming these are harnessed through threading.

Combined with,

Now, I’m going to dare to oversimplify what little understanding I have regarding threads. Since I came from the hardware side

I think it make it pretty clear threads and hardware are not the same and my approach to explaining them would be based in hardware.

Not to nitpick, but did you read or skim?  Please don't waste your time re-reading my rather long work, rather, take that time to write your own article explaining the difference between threads and cores and I will link to it.

You are right, I shouldn't have bothered, sorry I replied. Still getting used to this forum. I will make sure to never make that mistake again. Cheers.

Hey Deshipu,

Sorry, I hope I didn't come across too harsh.  Not as easy to give objective intonations in my writing.  I wasn't just defending the article, but rather, challenging you to fill in a gap.  I know my lack of understanding on threads leaves giant holes.  No worries; I tried to be pretty objective about it in the article. But it would be much more community minded if someone filled these holes with useful information rather than a short critique.

I was in no way being facetious; if you will write an article on the matter I will gladly link to it. :)

Sincerely,
--Ladvien

You pointed to an important fact: if you don't have the time, energy and motivation to go all in and explain everything in detail, don't bother clarifying things. I'm spread a little thin across my projects and the day job, and a short comment is all I can do at the moment. In retrospect, it's probably pretty much useless, so I apologize.

Oh, goodness, do I know "spread thin."  No worries, friend.  Hope life gets a little less hectic!  And I'll hold you to that article when things slow down. ;)

Cheers.

I suppose this is one difference between a wiki and a forum that gets me. On a wiki it's perfectly fine to start with something rudimentary and even incorrect, or to make only some small corrections and improvements in an existing page, without having to commit a lot of effort and time all at once. And then all this effort and small improvements accumulate and you end up with a better article. On a forum you have one big post, and then all the comments seem to be either a "me too" or an attack, and they usually seem to undermine the value of the thread, until someone gathers a lot of energy and writes a big and detailed reply summarizing everything. I'm still figuring out what is the best way to post here.
