.Windows 8 Thread does not have a “ZOMBIE” state. Would it be useful if Windows 8 were modified to add the “ZOMBIE” state?

Hi abbey :)

Can you explain us what you mean exactly by "zombie" state? You mean, "hibernation mode"?

 zombie process or defunct process is a process that has completed execution (via the exit system call) but still has an entry in the process table: it is a process in the "Terminated state". This occurs for child processes, where the entry is still needed to allow the parent process to read its child'sexit status: once the exit status is read via the wait system call, the zombie's entry is removed from the process table and it is said to be "reaped". A child process always first becomes a zombie before being removed from the resource table

This is more a question related to programming than anything to be honest. I know what a zombie process is since you use it in C++ (at least, I did). It's not really Windows 8-related if you asks me.
