It's the bane of cross platform development. Processes are reasonably consistent from Windows to MacOS to Linux. Threads, on the other hand, are a nightmare to develop cross platform. Take a look at the "single threaded" Excel application and you can see up to 25 threads for a single workbook open.
The real question is how many of those processes are in a sleep state of some sort, thereby taking just swap space and no processor.
I'm getting notifications at stupid times: the "It's out for delivery today" email arrives six hours after the goods reached my door; "order confirmation" turns up 8 hours after the dispatch note; that kind of thing.
And this has been happening for weeks.
OK, I know why - with the lockdowns, their workload has gone massively high, they are overstretched.
But ... they own AWS, "the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform" and I thought the great idea with serverless cloud products was expansion: you need more processing, more bandwidth, more anything you just pour some more in. So presumably their systems run on AWS, which doesn't look good for it, really ...

Amazon is having serious issues, and I'm not quite sure where the disconnect is. It might be in the final delivery, not sure.
The other day I ordered a replacement laptop charger. The first thing I noticed, even if it did say "shipped by amazon" was the two day prime looked like 4 day prime. Okay, whatever, CV19 likely. Email confirming the order arrived. 5 days later, still nothing. After a full week, I get an email apologizing that they could not deliver. Hmmm...
So, I went to the page listing reasons why they could not deliver. Every single one of them is the customer's fault. Now, mind you, in the week I've been waiting on the charger, my wife has received probably a dozen deliveries from Amazon, so, no, I don't think it's my issue. And Amazon makes it impossible to gripe at them with their Indian call centers (no offense to the Indians...).

Just thought I might rant a bit.
Simply trying to use MS example and driver to use Java to connect to sql server.
The only error I can ever get is: java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc:sqlserver://
I don't believe it is finding the proper jar file.
I noticed that when I build via javac that even if I provide a bad path to the jar or whatever, the "compiler" happily rolls on. Oy! No way to even tell if javac is incorporating the jar.
