I suspect vitamin was giving you the Windows definitions, since
that is what Windows apps expect and thus what Wine must provide
(or, at least, appear to).

The notion of a process being a resource container does not sound
all that Unix/Linux-ish to me, either, but I would not be at all
surprised to find it considered standard terminology in Windows.
