Well, it says also that
Actions, however, must be ordered in a well-defined manner for
program execution -- and I/O in particular -- to be meaningful.
Haskell 's I/O monad provides the user with a way to specify the
sequential chaining of actions, and an implementation is obliged
to preserve this order.
which is not true in a threaded program.
