Its kernel level in Linux. You can see all the threads each process uses
if you want to. Here's how:

- Start a multi-threaded process. A native Java program is a good
  choice. Since the garbage collector and the Swing display manager
  have separate threads you'll see at least three. 

- While that's running, execute the command "ps -eLf" and you'll see all
  the threads that are running in the system.

- the ones with the same pid and executable name all belong to the same

If threads were merely a figment of some library's imagination you
couldn't see them this way.
