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.

So, what is the solution, because the problem exist?

Processors have growing number of core and those core are not that much faster, there is just more of them. Normal code will run only on one of the, taking advantages of only 1/${number_of_core} of the power. "real world" applications need this power. I am not talking about IM client or your favorite text editor, but application used to do what a computer is aim to do, computation.
