Re: the phrase "parallel processing":

So that beginners do not get the wrong idea I wish to make clear that Unix based systems are not designed to, and can not do parallel processing.  Strictly speaking it is also not designed to do real time processing. Unix/Linux does do multitasking by using task switching.  Unix based systems does allow users with the proper priviledge to set task priority, which helps in deciding which task gets more run time.
