Hi Frank.
 
(niXman...  Is that supposed to be some kind of superhero?)
No. It`s from the "Man who always uses the *nix" platform =)

niXman, if your use case is to use std::thread with mingw-w64 and
pthreads-win32, I should be able to refer you to some earlier posts that
show how to do it, and could probably give you some pointers if you
hit snags.
Thanks anticipatorily.
