FreeBSD Not too long ago, Apple open sourced its Grand Central Dispatch library, which aids in developing multithreaded code. It was suggested that it could be ported to other platforms, and the FreeBSD team has done exactly that. They have also done a lot of work related to getting GCD to work in a POSIX environment.

Sorry for feeding your negativity, but FreeBSD did create jemalloc which is now used in Firefox 3 for increased multithread memory allocation performance.
