One of my pet peeves about colloquial American English is the use of "waiting on" when what is meant is "waiting for" - as in "I'll be waiting on
you downstairs" to which I am often tempted to reply "Thank you, but I
don't intend to dine downstairs."
Does a process wait for a socket/event or does a process wait on a socket/event?
Thank you very much.
