Main jobs of an Operating System

In this lesson I talked about the main funtions of a single user operating system and somehow managed to find a way to tie in a picture of an early flight simulator that I used to play back in the early nineties. Unfortunately I forget exactly why this was relevant now but it might be that I was trying to give a link between providing an HCI or interpreting user commands.

I did also show you this powerpoint which shows all the jobs that you need to know:

  • Managing memory
  • Resource allocation
  • File management
  • Input/Output
