My doubt is what if the scheduler decides to finish off the main() thread first and only then execute the new thread? Then, 2 String constants would be put in the constant pool to be reused in the run() method (then, "abc" and "cde" objects wouldn't be created?) Yeah, after thinking awhile on my own stuff, I see you're right 4 objects will be created anyway. The difference would appear should I have different String constants in the main(). Or would it?
