Microsoft has their own posix layer, it was called Windows Services for Unix: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Services_for_UNIX. It is VERY old. It shipped versions of GCC that are horribly out of date which is unfortunate because it could have been useful. Mingw/cygwin are much more modern/better implementations of similar ideas.

I’m not sure.  It looks as if MS is shipping their own POSIX layer (they’re using pthreads and similar in various places in their code).
