    Usually, multitaksing is refered to as a feature of OS, while multithreading is the feature of process, which is called task at the early ages when there is no such thing called thread and multithreading.

    Re: what is the difference b multitasking and multithreading ?

    In computing, multitasking is a method by which multiple tasks, also known as processes, share common processing resources such as a CPU.
    Multithreading extends the idea of multitasking into applications, so you can subdivide specific operations within a single application into individual threads.
