If by sockets you are referring to networking sockets, no special

For many years Microsoft stubbornly pretended that TCP/IP
didn't exist and tried to force all their customers to stick
with their proprietary SMB NetBIOS/NetBEUI stuff. After what
was probably a large percentage of MS customers had added on
third-party TCP/IP libraries from Sun, Wollongong, and others

networking and the Winsock API that had been initially defined
 Ignoring reality is something that Microsoft has always
been pretty good at.
