There is a msvc port but it is partially incomplete (missing features and
functions) in certain areas and can be a bit buggy. Its also not been
updated for a few years so doesn't always play nicely with current msvc
versions (last supported version was 2010). That and its known to use some
older win32 api stuff in there that benchmarks notably slower than win32
threads natively.
So it is there and can work its just native support is often cleaner and
with less hassle.
