Whenever a new file is open, system wide, a new entry in the global file table is created. These entries are shared amongst all process, for example when a file is opened by two different process, they may have the same file descriptor number, e.g., 3, but each of the file descriptors will reference a different entry in the file descriptor table.

This is from your link given. So its False.
