Goroutines are not really available as simple libraries in other environments, since they don't map 1:1 to OS threads.


You mean co-routines, continuations, Java Tasks, .NET tasks, C++11 futures, Win32 fibers and many other examples?

All of those do a M:N mapping of tasks to threads.


Edit: added some extra information
