Re. Hyper-Threading technology



I want to make sure I have understood this correctly!

They imitate the operating system of the two processor applications and can therefore carry out several computer requests simultaneously.

English translation:the technology imitates/emulates a dual-processor setting/application
Explanation:
IOW, the technology lets the operating system "believe" that two processors are used, thus enabling it to process several requests at a time/simultaneously. IMHO the latter situation is also referred to as multi-tasking but I'm not so sure whether that would fit here.
