I'm new to the Fedora world (just escaped from Ubuntu island). Should I worry? What'd be that for?

I have no processes running with that name. Anyway it's not a must. If it uses a lot of CPU (or just you don't want it to run senseless on your machine) I suggest you to ALT + F2


Disabling (just disable, do not remove it so if a day you'll need it you can activate it again) that process and then reboot.

I hope this helps ;)
