I meant the bit underneath that - I only have 4 cores (8 on my
haswell) and I use 40 line terms so lots of room for details, here's
a quick copy of the first few processes on an idle desktop:

  PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ S COMMAND
 1321 root      20   0  370.6m  55.4m   1.3  0.7   0:35.85 S Xorg
22670 ken       20   0 3199.1m 146.4m   0.7  1.8   0:06.61 S falkon
22733 ken       20   0 2276.9m 348.6m   0.7  4.4   0:21.15 S QtWebEngineProc
    1 root      20   0    4.2m   1.4m   0.0  0.0   0:00.40 S init

At that moment Xorg was using most cpu (1.3%).
