what is an OS ?

big question, good question, one basic definition is: "you can call OS the program that runs all the time enabling other programs to be launched without any conflicts"

maybe think about what kinds of things it mean:

  • providing environment for other programs to operate in
  • control access to system resources
  • allocate system resources
  • promotes efficient use of system resources
  • provides convenient interface for interactive users
