The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Can't answer that but if you want to see all processes owned by a specific user you can type:
If you want to see all processes associated with a certain terminal (tty/pty) type:
Either of the above will show you the user's shell and all other processes for that user (in case of username) or on that user's terminal (in the case of terminal).
The reason you might want to use the latter is that the user may have multiple logins and you may only be interested in what one of those logins is doing. Also this will let you see if the user has changed users with the su command as the process for the switched user will still be associated with the terminal.
i hate humingbird exceed (too bloaty) why dont you like putty?
PuTTY is for doing ssh connections. Exceed is for displaying X Windows connections.
You're correct for terminals there's not a lot of difference. However you can initiate the session from the server side on an X Window and also give it tons more options than you can a standard PuTTY window. However I mainly use Exceed for a lot of the other X Windows one has from Unix/Linux. I wouldn't be able to display a browser from my Linux workstation to my Windows through PuTTY but can with Exceed. A lot of the admin tools on HP-UX (which are superior to Solaris' hodge-podge of tools IHMO) have both a text based and GUI version and generally like using the latter.
