A mutex is a common type of lock used to serialize concurrent access by multiple threads to shared resources. While support for POSIX mutexes in the QNX Neutrino Realtime OS dates back to the early days of the system, this area of the code has seen considerable changes in the last couple of years.

A piece about Operating Systems, finally!

I have a question; is the neutrino internal threading model based on pthreads, or does it have a different native model onto which they get mapped?

PS. I used to develop on QNX. I really miss the pervasive message passing, basically its programming model.
