On HP-UX 10.2, pthreads are whats used. They are part of the DCE (Distributed
Computing Environment) 9000 system used -- whatever that means. I believe the
pthreads are also used on HPUX 11, the difference, as I understand it, between
10.2 and 11 is on 10.2 they are referred to as user threads and on 11 they are
kernel threads. I don't know much about it besides this.
