In the "Kernel (Computers)" page it states "It is responsible for providing secure multiplexing" dont mess with it
and the word multiplexing links to this page. The most relevant definition is #3, "In electronics a device that takes multiple inputs and combines them using time division" But that is much too vague and much too ambiguous to describe what is meant by multiplexing in operating systems. Perhaps it should refer to multitasking and/or multithreading. Or perhaps there should be a definition that begins "In computer operating systems, multiplexing refers to..."
P.S. I believe this comment should also go to the editors of the "Kernel (Computers)" page.
If one of the highways could have ended at the other, that is a "stupid multiplex".
- Is "stupid multiplex" the technical term for this? I thought something like  might be a "stupid multiplex". If you can't read the picture, it shows Highway 401 multiplexed with itself. --Timc 02:26, 19 Aug 2004 (UTC)
