General Motors Research Laboratories implemented the first operating systems in early 1950's for their IBM 701 Punched cards were used To run a job (a program or a set of related programs) first punch it and give the deck to the operators and wait for the output (batch operation) Computers were single userPowerPoint Presentation: What is an operating System? A program that acts as an intermediary between a user of a computer and the computer hardware. Operating system goals: Execute user programs and make solving user problems easier. Make the computer system convenient to use. Use the computer hardware in an efficient manner. Allows efficient usage; parallel activity, avoids wasted cycles. Provides information protection. Gives each user a slice of the resources. Acts as a control program.PowerPoint Presentation: Features of operating system 1. Program execution . Interrupts Protected mode and supervisor mode. Memory management Virtual Memory Multitasking Disk access and file systems Device drivers Networking SecurityPowerPoint Presentation: Need of operating system Operating System provides a stable and consistent way to deal with hardware without having to know all the details of the hardware. 2. To manage the hardware and software resources. 3. It plays the role of good parent, making sure that each application gets the necessary resources while playing nicely with other applications.PowerPoint Presentation: Various operating systems developed by various companies Operating system Platform Developer AIX/AIXL Various IBM AmigaOS Amiga Commodore BSD Various BSD Caldera Linux Various SCO Corel Linux Various Corel Debian Linux Various GNU DUnix Various Digital DYNIX/ ptx Various IBM HP-UX Various Hewlett Packard IRIX Various SGI Kondara Linux Various KondaraPowerPoint Presentation: Previous versions of windows Release date Product name Notes Last IE May 1990 Windows 3.x Unsupported 5 July 1993 Windows NT Unsupported 5 August 1995 Windows 95 Unsupported 5.5 June 1998 Windows 98 Unsupported 6 February 2000 Windows 2000 No longer supported 6 September 2000 Windows Me Extended Support until July 13, 2010  6 October 2001 Windows XP Current for SP 2 and SP 3 ( RTM and SP 1 unsupported). 8 November 2006 (volume licensing) January 2007 (retail) Windows Vista Current.
