Sorry to be such a n00b, but can someone please explain WikiPedia's statement
that "eCos (embedded configurable operating system) is an open source,
royalty-free, real-time operating system intended for embedded systems and
applications which need only one process with multiple threads"?
Why only one process? And presumably the thread are what I would think of as
processes in "normal" terminology?
I guess that what I am asking here is whether this is just a matter of
semantics (what's a process? what's a thread?) or if there are some
technical restrictions ...
Thank you very much in advance for any clarification.
