I checked the links and found that
" No software restriction on the number of tasks that can be created". Also, "Any number of tasks can share the same priority.
Each available priority consumes RAM within the kernel".
So, is it depends on the level of priority? If so, how much memory a task can handle?
Also, the memory gauge in demo project shows that it uses almost 90% of the ram, even though i commented all the tasks except one? May i know about this?
