How does performance of green threads compare with performance of native threads?

Nathan Meyers

On a multi-CPU machine, native threads can assign work to multiple processors while green threads cannot - so native threads are a big advantage.

On a uniprocessor box, there is no clear answer. Some claim that user-space (green) threads are faster than kernel-space (native) threads, but that is not proven.
