Option C seems like a perfectly valid suggestion.  Depending on the availability of idle cycles appears problematic on a Win system.  They may simply never become available.  The programmer needs to understand this limitation and solve the problem.  I can think of many situtations where idle time is never available.  Just run an old DOS program that sits there and polls the keyboard.

Your other alternative is to use a real operating system that never allows any program to starve for lack of resources.
