A thread is not an actual schedule. It is more closely related to being a sequence or group of sequences within a process that yeild a result.

Ie: a newgroup may have many descusions going on. Each discussion may have many responces from several people. The descussions are threads of the whole newsgroup and the responces are threads of the specific topic. Much the same works with the computer.

It can be said that all the running programs are threads of the whole session. In addition, each running program can be made up of threads in the form of parallel running tasks.

hope this helps
