Preemption from the kernel scheduler only solves thread blocking, but the V8 runtime and VM can both block in specific ways while still remaining interruptible by the kernel

— You can get I/O deadlock, races, thread sync issues, etc... that V8 cannot mitigate... until I'm done with my projects, that is

— Say them that i will handle race conditions, let they give me that shared memory/dom web worker thing🤤

— Because current workers are almost useless

— Agreed

— But the solution Dani gives does not solve the concurrent solution you mean determin1st

— In the case of Dani workers wont be better than current ones

— Because there is only one execution thread

— It will need napa or something similar to run concurrently or at least in different isolates, and sharing memory

— Which i think is good because of Dani is ahead of current abstraction level
