From the author of


The operating system is in charge of scheduling for each thread some CPU cycles in which it might execute. The amount of time scheduled for a particular thread depends on the priority assigned to the thread. An individual thread's overall priority is determined by a combination of the priority of the process that created the thread (called the priority class) and the priority of the thread itself (called the relative priority).
