First of all... I've never understood why everyone thinks threads are so
hard. But I do acknowledge that the 97% can't be trusted with threads. Then
again, the 97% probably shouldn't be trusted with C++ or C either. That's
why we have VB (and now Java, I suppose).

And if you still want Microsoft's answer to tasking as you define it
(threading model integrated with objects, no explicit synchronization
required), then you're talking STA (single-thread apartment) model for COM
objects. Which is really just an evolution of the Windows event-handling
