I know the difference between the threading and multiprocessing

Yes but it comes with it's own disadvantages. It still doesn't solve the
problem of effective multi*threading*. CPU bound threads are still
forcefully serialised by the GIL. If you use processes instead of
threads, you won't face the problem but you'll use processed which are
more heavyweight than threads.

I'm not sure how these links are relevant to this whole discussion. I'm
also a little unsure about the point you're trying to make. The
difference between Windows and Linux is mentioned here by Jesse (the
original author and maintainer of multiprocessing)
