Just a quick comment about that one:

When we say "process model" we mean "process" as in Unix process, i.e.,
an abstraction for a separate entity that include one or more threads of
execution.  The emphasis is on separation and having the ability to
safely terminate a "process" (i.e., kill -9 it).

When the CSP people say "process" they mean - for the most part - 
"thread of execution".  Other people, like the Limbo/Inferno folks,
follow the same terminology.  It can be confusing at times.
