Get an "opensource" conversation going on the course mailing list! Pause for Sarah's infomercial Beaver BarCamp Saturday, April 4 What is an Operating System? A program that ... Manages computer hardware Provides a basis for application programs Provides the interface between users* and computer hardware *users can be people, application programs, peripheral devices, other computers, etc. Operating System Definition No universally accepted definition OS is a resource allocator OS is a control program Manages all resources Decides among conflicting requests for efficient and fair resource use Controls execution of programs to prevent errors and improper use of the computer Operating System Definition (Cont.) OS is the kernel. The one program running at all times on the computer Everything else is
system) an application program a system program (ships with the operating Operating system goals: May include (depending on the context) : These goals are often conflicting Execute user programs Facilitate solving user problems. Make the computer system convenient to use. Use the computer hardware in an efficient manner. Etc. Types of operating systems Goals differ depending on hardware architecture/configuration Mainframe Personal computer
