It means that each thread that accesses the variable sees a distinct or "thread-local" version of it.

Thanks Paul - so would a typical use case be for static members of a class? In normal circumstances, a static class member has the same value for all instances of the class. But maybe (in this case) 2 objects running in different threads could each have different values?
