How well do the threading feature work on the Link? Because I heard they didn't work well or at all on the CBC

The threading uses pthreads just as it did on the CBCv2. pthreads is the POSIX threading standard library, so it is unlikely to perform too badly. The Link is about a 500 Mhz jump in processor speed, so it should be even more responsive.

We relied heavily on pthreads last year with the CBC2s and they worked wonderfully for us. We have not gotten them working on the Link this year though.
