This is possibly a dumb question but is the boost thread library a
possibility for use in embedded systems - like WinCE or down to the lower
end where I mainly work at. Is the platform somehow abstracted away from
most of the code or is it closely tied in and lots of work is needed for
each platform and available features are platform dependent?

What is the need for boost threads when there's Dinkumware threads ?? -
because it's open source and free?
