Process is any kind of program or task carried out by your PC. For e.g. $ ls -lR , is command or a request to list files in a directory and all subdirectory in your current directory. It is a process. A process is program (command given by user) to perform some Job. In Linux when you start process, it gives a number (called PID or process-id), PID starts from 0 to 65535.

It depends a bit on the version of Linux, and the accompanying tools. For me "ps -ef" shows the processes one twonkymediaserver and "ps -efL" shows the threads 28 threads.
