I'm REALLY new at do some good with threading (does not mean i'm not unfamiliar)
I would like to hear your opinion on how this .NET 4 would be in .NET 3.5 (perhaps also 2.0)

static void Main()
{
  Task<string> task = Task.Factory.StartNew<string> (() => DownloadString ("http://www.yahoo.com"));
  //xx something else
  string result = task.Result;
}
 
static string DownloadString (string uri)
{
   using (var wc = new System.Net.WebClient())
    return wc.DownloadString (uri);
}

These examples would do the same thing:

// Example 1
BackgroundWorker bw = new BackgroundWorker();
bw.DoWork += (s,e) => DownloadString("http://www.yahoo.com");
bw.RunWorkerAsync();

// Example 2
ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem((state) =>  DownloadString("http://www.yahoo.com"));

// Example 3
Thread thread = new Thread(() => DownloadString("http://www.yahoo.com"));
thread.Start();
