Unlike mutexes & semaphores, a critical section is not a Kernel object. Acquiring a mutex or semaphore always requires a switch into kernel mode, which is not necessarily true for critical sections.

The major disadvantages of critical sections are:
  1. They are not shareable between processes (unlike semaphores and mutexes)
  2. They are not recursive (unlike mutexes)
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
