    The function fork() is defined by POSIX, so it should be available in all Operating Systems which say they're POSIX

    According to Wikipedia, that includes 16 OSs with full POSIX compliance, and another 16 mostly compliant (Linux is one of these). Windows has some options to become POSIX compliant.
