 What Are All Those Processes?

Nice article that lists what is going on under the pretty interface.

"Mac OS X (like any unixish OS) always has a number of things going on in the background -- processes that take care of business behind the scenes. Normally, you won't even notice them, unless you use something like Activity Monitor (ProcessViewer under 10.2 or before) or the ps or top commands to look at the process list. If you do notice them, you may wonder what on earth they're all there for. This list is here to answer that question. "
