Main differences between process and thread:

🔹 Processes are usually independent, while threads exist as process subsets.
🔹 Each process has its own memory space. Threads that belong to the same process share the same memory.
🔹 A process is a heavyweight operation. It takes more time to create and terminate. 
🔹 Context switching is more expensive between processes.
🔹 Inter-thread communication is faster for threads.
