Question on multi threading

I heard that, in Linux it not the process which is being scheduled instead its the thread which is being scheduled.

Now my question is that

I have two process P1 and P2, each process creates two threads, P1(T1, T2) and P2(T3, T4).
How will the threads be scheduled now.

Thanks in advance.

There are typically hundreds of processes and threads running on a typical Linux desktop. The scheduler determines when each gets to run. Scheduling is a complex subject.


scheduling, threads
