Blast from the Past: `TThread` got introduced in Delphi 2

Thanks Nick Hodges for asking, and Uwe Raabe for answering:
Yep! Delphi 2 had TThread while Delphi 1 did not.
It resulted in an interesting thread including topics like cooperative multi-tasking and named pipes under DOS by using Turbo Pascal.
Boy, I remember the
\pipe\ days and releasing a time slice by calling INT $28, $15 and $2F combinations like this:
Note: you can even use INT $2F with AX=$1680 to check if you are running in a DOS x86 VM and other OS checks.
