Managing Processes
* The process structure has a '''root''', '''parents''', and '''children'''
* Creation of a new process is called '''forking''' or '''spawning'''
* Each process has its own '''PID''' (''process ID number'')
* The Parent process can spawn a child and children can spawn their own children
* Processes keep their '''PID''' for their entire life
