<operating system> (Or "time quantum", "quantum") The period of time for
which a process is allowed to run uninterrupted in a pre-emptive multitasking
The scheduler is run once every time slice to choose the next process to run. If
the time slice is too short then the scheduler will consume too much processing
time but if it is too long then processes may not be able to respond to external
events quickly enough.
