Default Forking and overhead in FreeBSD

I thought I read somewhere that FreeBSD implemented some method where forking was now virtually the same overhead as setting up threads. There's some guy arguing with me that everything in the 'nixes is done with forking, not threading, and windows is so much better, blah blah blah, which is what made me think I had read something somewhere about that.
