Question: I often hear something like this "daemon runs" or "how to make my own daemon"... Is not it the same daemon and application? They are both executable. What is difference between daemons, services and applications?

Answer: In UNIX terminology, applications that provide services rather than directly communicate with users are called daemons. For example network, printer services and so on...
They do not need any direct interaction with user and run in background, invisible for GUI users.
In Windows the same concept is known as a service.
So, if you can not communicate with application that you develop and it is invisible - you can surely call it daemon or service, until all bugs are fixed Smile
