Subject SEC: UNCLASSIFIED - RE: Why so many processes?

Actually, I believe (although this is possibly a bit off track :) that Linux
threads *are* processes.  The Linux implementation of processes is
lightweight enough that there is no requirement to have a lighter weight
version (stuff like: it doesn't copy memory unless it needs to - just uses
the same memory for both child and parent).

It's normal... Those are not processes but threads (which under Linux are
shown as they were processes)... Damn Linux.
