I just wanted to know what the difference between a processor and a microprocessor is. In some articles they mix those terms and that confuses me a bit.
Maybe processor is the whole thing (microprocessor + cache, etc.) and the microprocessor is the actual part of the processor which does the execution, etc.?

They get tired of typing microprocessor, and took off the micro.
Within the context they are generally assumed to be the same.

Yep, one may be bigger than the other.
