My knowledge of Ada is pretty much limited to information gleaned from
the ongoing discussion in this group.

AIUI, Ada natively supports multithreading.  How is that implemented
relative to the underlying oprtating system?  Does it use the OS's
multi-taking environmant to implement stuff like scheduling and task 
synchronisation, or does it use its own, or is that something that can
be chosen by the user, or is it implemntation defined?

What about Ada running on single-tasked OSs, or indeed on no OS at all?
