When I first started writing concurrent software, C++ had no support for synchronization. Windows itself had only a handful of synchronization primitives, all of which were implemented in the kernel. I tended to use a critical section unless I needed to synchronize across processes, in which case I used a mutex. In general terms, both of these are locks, or lock objects.
