Atom 1.0 multiple processes



After using Atom for 2-3 days, if I open my task manager I can see multiple Atom processes, all the same( I’m talking about 4-5 processes, not more like I read in other discussion). That is not a problem for me and my PC, even if I have low quality PC components. I would just know why once I launch Atom it launches other processes than the original one.




If you look into the Electron documentation, there are at least two processes for an Atom instance, the main process and the renderer process. If there are other windows open, linters running external processes, etc. there may be more.
