Just got a Mac Mini with Monterey and from the start I see 1600+ threads in Activity Monitor, when I had only about 700 on my previous High Sierra Macbook.
I don't like processes inflation so I was able to kill some and the best I can do is 1207 (idle, 3 minutes after restart).
Software like Logi Option for my mouse and keyboard shows inflation too, it is around 20 threads but more than 150 threads is you install their new beta Option+ ...
Anyone else concerned about this inflation? I know we get more power with these new machines, but it's not good practice to have so many processes in background, a welcome screen could lead us to disable whatever we don't need (such as notifications, auto-updates etc.)
