I'm a research student whose work involves processes, and I had a question about Linux's task list. From what I understand, as long as the computer has booted up, it is accepting processes. The processes it accepts can be created from anywhere. How does it do this? I'm having trouble imagining how it manages to be all accepting and ever running in Linux.
I'm still new to Linux, so I apologize if I'm being ignorant. Thank you in advance!
