Processes and Threads#

This is an interesting topic because without realising it you've been using a computer that is executing processes and threads constantly, in the hundreds or thousands, as you're using your computer. Every time you move your mouse or use the track pad, press a key or a piece of software you have running does something (or nothing), a thread is running on your CPU to do some unit of work, like move the mouse cursor, process the key press or just display the software's window on the screen.
