A synchronization mutex (mutual exclusion).
    public class Mutex : Reference

A synchronization mutex (mutual exclusion). This is used to synchronize multiple Threads, and is equivalent to a binary Semaphore. It guarantees that only one thread can ever acquire the lock at a time. A mutex can be used to protect a critical section; however, be careful to avoid deadlocks.
