Conclusion

In this chapter, we've examined the structure of processes and threads and jobs, seen how they are created, and looked at how Windows decides which threads should run and for how long.

Many references in this chapter are to topics related to memory management. Because threads run inside processes and processes in large part define an address space, the next logical topic is how Windows performs virtual and physical memory management—the subjects of Chapter 7.
