This is indeed a very desirable characteristic to gain, regardless of the target platform you are addressing. From a certain perspective, System.Threading capabilities are abstractions over the parallel programming mechanisms of each platform and will let you implement your applications with a single code base even when the internals of each of the platforms are different.
