On AmigaOS the only difference between a "task" and a "process" (from Exec's point of view they are all tasks) is that the "struct Process" contains some additional fields over the "struct Task". Most notably the pr_MsgPort which is used by dos.library for communicating with filesystems.

The only real difference between a task and a process is that a task can't make use of DOS while a process can.
