Before Display Postscript (developed for Apple)
there was NeWS.  See the NeWS book at
http://bitsavers.trailing-edge.com/pdf/sun/NeWS/The_NeWS_Book_1989.pdf

Programming in a concurrent OO extension of Postscript never really
appealed to me, and the performance issues of thread decades ago
probably look quite different today with GPUs.
