Tim,
        Solaris has RPC's, Threads, POSIX threads (in EA) and ONC+,
wich is all that good stuff. One thing to note about DCE threads, aka
Pthreads, they based the Pthreads on draft 4 of the standard, it is
now at draft 8, and will most likely go to draft 9. A lot of things
changed between draft 4 abd 8. Talk to the DCE people to get a NEW
version cut of POSIX (DCE) threads.
