Duane, when a application begins to use threads the "main process" is
converted into a thread. There is no process distinction between
different threads of the same program.

About the only thing different with the main thread is what happens when
the main thread exits, it then brings down all threads in the
applications, while other threads simply vanishes (some status is kept,
but not the thread).
