Answer:

It’s not just Doom, it’s PSDoom: created as a neat process management tool for some UNIX flavour. Use it to change priorities (wound) or stop (kill) processes :) processes on a system also kill each other when it gets too crowded and stuff.

    I didn’t get the question. If you are asking the name of the game, it is XDoom. The window title bar has that. But that would be too obvious…..

    Doom as a tool for system administration. It will spawn a new soldier for each process, renice the process when it is wounded, and kill the process when it dies.

    and ofcourse you can kill the process in a much cooler way i.e doom style

    This is the Doom Process Manager (I forget what name it really had) where all your ‘enemies’ are processes that you could kill, respawn, etc.. basically a way for sysadmins to kill time (and PIDs!)

    Nice clue :)
