This is an interesting article.
I have considered writing such a program in the past. However Java JVMs are not guaranteed to preempt a thread and give control to another thread. A thread must block in order to guarantee that another thread will run.

I believe the above programs will work correctly on Windows NT based machines, but I am not so sure this works correctly on Unix machines.
