    From the website: http://www-124.ibm.com/developerworks/oss/pthreads/

    "Linus Torvalds: Look at Next Generation POSIX Threads (NGPT) for the future"
    "of threads, he advised. "pthreads are horrible, and Linux has a very"
    "different model, and there was no glue between the two." NGPT could be that"
    "glue."
