Separate article?[edit]

It may be that the topic of alien threads is not big enough to merit a separate Wikipedia article. If so, we can always merge this article into (say) Thread (computer science) and make this article into a WP:Redirect. I would like to give this article some time (months?) to develop before we make any decision.

Another paper[edit]

While finding the DOI for the ISSADS-2005 paper, I noticed another paper mentioning "alien threads" in L4Linux.

"L4 - Virtualization and Beyond"
Hermann Härtig, Michael Roitzsch, Adam Lackorzynski, Björn Döbel, Alexander Böttcher
Korean Information Science Society Review, December 2008

I'll have to read both papers (both look worth reading, BTW) to see if they use the term "alien thread" with the same meaning. Cheers, CWC 11:39, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
