Hi Max,

We don't think that rtos_basic example is a good choice for Microbit - for instance Microbit doesn't have general purpose LEDs.

Could you start with the set of examples from the Microbit teams page here:

These examples are based on a powerful Device Abstraction Layer (DAL) designed for Microbit. The button-events example shows how you can direct output to the serial console.

We suggest using the "Import program" button and building these in the Online Compiler (with the Microbit selected for your target).

thanks ralph. i agree. i eventually got my program going LEDs ,serial PC and several threads by reducing the stack size of the threads .fairly RAM memory constrained. next time i'll use a bigger system. yes the DAL is an excellent cooperative system. i've been impressed at how professional it is.
