You've always been able to do concurrency, so maybe it wasn't seen as a 
dramatic need. I never did. I could always add it. I was happy that Java 
had concurrency until I saw how broken it was.

And don't forget you still have a lot of people, especially in the agile 
keep it simple camp, that say concurrency is an unecessary complexity. 
The exact opposite of seeing concurrency as a fundamental building 
block. They have, of course, thrown the baby out with the bath water, 
but the attitude is common.
