|This course will provide an introduction to operating
system design and implementation. The operating system
provides a well-known, convenient,
and efficient interface between user programs and the bare hardware of the computer on which they run. The operating system is responsible for
allowing resources (e.g., disks, networks, and processors) to be shared, providing common services needed by many different programs (e.g., file
service, the ability to start or stop processes, and access to the printer), and protecting individual programs from one another.
The course will start with
a brief historical perspective of the evolution of
operating systems over the last fifty years, and then
cover the major components
