Linux supports threads. Has since kernel v1.3.56. There are at least
2 thread libraries available: LinuxThreads, clthreads. LinuxThreads seems
more popular - possibly because it tries to be POSIX? There is even a
"Linux Clone Project" [the name refers to the clone() call].

Never used threads myself - looks interesting though.
