comment What is the difference between a job and a process?
@Kenny, as far as processes, when I say program, that's a very general thing - a set of ordered instructions for the CPU to carry out. This is also called a task or a thread of execution. A process may create another thread that shares its address space.

@Kenny yes, those tro jobs would also be processes. In fact, every job is a process. A job is related to your she'll session. Every process you start that doesn't detatch from your tty is a job.
