Matt writes: On page 61, I found the sentence,

"No thread will ever be running if another thread with higher priority is not running, but is in the runnable state."

to be confusing. I think something like

"A thread will never run if another thread, with higher priority and in the runnable state, is not running."

would be more clear.

However, I am not convinced Matt's suggestion is actually an improvement. How about "A thread will never be running if another runnable thread has higher priority."?


Actually, I don't like my suggestion either because it isn't correct for scheduling multiple processors. This needs further thought.
