Rubbish, threading is needed in a lot of applications. For example web servers or even web query utilities so that they can download concurrent parts of the page.

I use threading a bit, especially for GUI part and application. Splitting these into two threads makes the whole process to work well. Now should the language support this quietly and transparently, that is a different question.
