Is there any other kernel threading apart from linux threading?

Yes - these days, pretty much all of the major Unix flavours support this functionality, at their latest versions at least, including AIX, Solaris, HPUX, SCO, Tru64, and others.

Linux advocates like to say that Linux has the best support for various reasons, but I think this is the religious style of debate and we could discuss that all day.

This was a new and exciting feature in the early 2.2 kernels - that was a long time ago in this industry, and of course we're now well into 2.4...

I had a quick look around and I found a comparison table - pretty old now (no AIX 5 for a start!) but it may help you.

PAQ'd and points refunded.   logan69 rejected original answer and posted more information so I don't think the intention would have been to accept that answer.
