OS/2 and eComStation Although it has not been formally announced, the eComStation 2.2 beta live CD has been released. This is not a complete version - eComStation isn't free - but it does give you an impression of what this continuation of OS/2 looks like and how it works. Registration is required.

Yeah, I was going to post something similar. I think that must be from 2001 or so. The current threading implementation for linux, NPTL, was introduced in 2.6 in 2003.

I don't the dig at windows on that same page. Windows had been multi-threading decently for a *long* time before that was written.
