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.

Being Fully Compliant is not necessarily much different from being Mostly Compliant. Even if you are 100% compliant you are only Mostly Compliant until you have been certified, which involves paying a fee. This is why Linux is not and never will be Fully Compliant.

That said, I understand that Linux is more like 99% compliant in that it (and GNU utilities) sometimes differ from the spec when it is felt that the spec is crazy. FreeBSD does the same kind of thing in a few places.
