I'm still learning about Linux.
As a Linux distro, Ubuntu is blessed with the ability to multi-task, the concurrent execution of programs. And these programs have processes, taking up their chunk of the system resources as necessary.
Process scheduling allows the execution of processes by priorities, so that the higher valued priorities execute more often that the lower valued priorities. But it is a surprise to me that the very important processes actually exhibit lower valued priorities. Why is this the case? What are the benefits?
