OS Midterm On-line Test Summer 2009-2010

During the 1960’s, operating systems designers developed the concept of multiprogramming.

The General Motors Research Laboratories implemented the first operating systems in early 1940's for their IBM 701.

It stands for API.

It stands for CLI.

Any computer software which manages and controls computer hardware so that application software can perform a task.

The other term for Application Programming Interface.

The software that controls the hardware.

The operating system installed in one of the Japanese mobile phone operator Willcom’s smart phone “D4”.

The OS from Sun Microsystems.

One of the most prominent examples of free software and open source development.

The trademarked name for a series of graphical user interface-based operating systems developed by Apple Inc.

A set of functions, procedures, methods, classes or protocols that an operating system, library or service provides to support requests made by computer programs.

OS generally run on server computers.

It is the large area you see on your computer screen?

What is the codename of Microsoft Windows future release?

It acts as a host for applications that are run on the machine.

It is the standard Windows environment?

It is the current server version of Windows?

Microsoft Windows most recent client version?

Interacting through a computer commonly pronounced as “gooey”.

O/S that has a significant majority of market share in the desktop and notebook computer markets.

A mechanism for interacting with a computer operating system or software by typing commands to perform specific tasks.

It is collectively describes any or all of several generations of Microsoft (MS) operating system (OS) products?

It is the name of several families of software operating system by Microsoft?

It is a small graphical picture representing a close program or command?

Based on the history there are five generation of O/S development.

1950’s marked the first generation of OS development.

OS that divide themselves among various CPU’s, balancing demand versus CPU availability even when the operating system itself is all that’s running.

It can deal with all CPU-intensive work of a normal process, but generally does not deal with the various types of I/O and does not establish structures requiring the extensive process control block of a regular process.

Operating systems that use one CPU for their own needs and divide applications processes among the remaining CPU’s.

Microprocessor technology evolved to the point that it becomes possible to build desktop computers as powerful as the mainframes of the 1970s.

Large Scale Integration refers to the million of circuits on a single chip.

Timesharing systems were developed to multi-program large number of simultaneous interactive users.

Time-sharing technique is a variant of multiprogramming technique, in which each user has an off-line terminal.

Spool means secondary peripheral operations on line.

By the early 1940's, the routine had improved somewhat with the introduction of punch cards.

Spooling refers to a process of transferring data by placing it in a temporary working area where another program may access it for processing at a later point in time.

UNIX is dominant on the large personal computers.

The earliest electronic digital computers had already operating systems.

Batch processing is the process or a series of noninteractive jobs all at one time.

Programming languages where known during the first generation.

Type operating system or application software that allows concurrent access by multiple users of a computer.

Microsoft's Windows and Apple's Mac OS platforms are both examples of operating systems that will let a single user have several programs in operation at the same time.

This operating system is designed to manage the computer so that one user can effectively do one thing at a time.

This operating system is used to control machinery, scientific instruments and industrial systems.

It is a small program loads the operating system into memory and allows it to begin operation.

It checks the CPU, memory, and basic input-output systems (BIOS) for errors and stores the result in a special memory location.

The other term for Read Only Memory or ROM.

The schedule work done by the processor depending on the operating system.

It stands for the acronym PBC.

Types of memory where data are stored and cannot be modified.

It is the other term for RAM.

5000KB of RAM is equivalent to how many MB of RAM?

Resource access time generally be considered as wasted, since it does not contribute to the advancement of the process.

It pertains to the status where the CPU is waiting for the keystroke.

It is a small amount of storage available on the CPU whose contents can be accessed more quickly than storage available elsewhere.

It is the keyboard combination (press simultaneous) to access the Windows Task Manager.

It refers to moving data in blocks between available memory as the schedule of processes dictates.

The technique of moving information in RAM to hard disk.

It is relatively small amounts of memory that are available to the CPU through the fastest connections.
