The kernel manages hardware resources and interacts directly with hardware. It includes a resource allocation layer and interface programs called device drivers for each hardware device. The service layer is an interface to components that provide functions called from applications, ranging from file and folder manipulation to accessing I/O devices, starting and stopping programs, allocating memory, and creating, moving, and resizing GUI windows. The command layer provides a user interface to the OS for managing hardware and software resources. 1.A real resource exists physically in a computer system. A virtual resource is available for use by a program or user but might not exist physically or might not be available during the entire execution of the program. 2.The goals of OS resource allocation are minimize system overhead while achieving acceptable levels of throughput and reliability. Allocation decisions that make more resources
