In the computer terminology there are two different words Multitasking and Multiprocessing.Both functionality are seems to be similar to each other. In Multitasking multi means many where as Tasking means various operations. So Multitasking means performing many operations. Then Multiprocessing also related to perform several operations in the computer. Then what is the main difference between these Multitasking and Multiprocessing?
I believe muliprocessing refers to the hardware; computers with multiple processors (or dual- or quad-core processors) are referred to as "multiprocessor" machines.
