multi threads are individual threads running in your program.
a thread is a single execution pipeline of instructions...

multitasking uses a combination of threads, processes and fibers..

a thread allows you to do a single task, 2 threads can do 2 tasks concurrently (well almost).

read up the
CreateThread() for windows and
fork() for unix / linux (create process)



{ Stating the obvious never helped any situation !! }

VB is better in respects to ease of use, speed, and lower system requirements. However, VC is faster in most respects.
