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.

I'm not entirely sold on GCD; it'll be interesting to see what the results of doing this are. If lots of FreeBSD application developers start using GCD, or if lots of application development moves to FreeBSD to get GCD, then I guess I'll just have to admit that I really don't get it.
