> (2) What sort of "process model" are you after? Have you considered
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.
