in thread forkManager PID 1 less than top

Where did you see random PIDs ? I think all (most?) Linux distros use sequental. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Process_identifier#Unix-like
Process IDs are usually allocated on a sequential basis

Also:

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-security/2010-February/005549.html

I am running Ubuntu with 3.8 kernal, PIDs are sequental.
Also, I think there can be problems with some software, when recently-used PID re-used too fast.

        Wow, you're absolutely right, Windows can't do anything right! Thanks for opening my eyes!

        Seriously now, I know it makes Linux look bad, but that doesn't mean you should lash out.

[perldigious]: So I don't envy you mountain guys if you have to drive in the winter, even with tire chains.
MidLifeXis waves.
[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
Discipulus seems a part of the globe very unfrindly with Kawasaki riders..
[thezip]: My doggies love it when it snows
[perldigious]: As long as you are a good "boy scout" stevieb, more power to you... but I like my Jeep, and don't like the idea of rolling it or crashing it in to anything. :-)
[thezip]: Me, not as much.
