    I saw your message in comp.lang.c++. I responded there with a detailed opinion on both Boost threads, ZThreads, and pthreads.

    But I'll restate briefly that I don't really think either Boost threads or ZThreads is a library that meets my needs. ZThreads has more abstractions, but has its shortcomings as well. In the end, I use my own hand-wrapped threading library.

    I have use Boost, but i didnīt like them. The i see POSIX. It is very simple and fast, so i prefer POSIX that Boost.
    The other library i don`t know.
