Types of Operating System
There are three types of operating system.
1. Batch Processing – Input data along with Jobs are fed as a batch into the system. After the first Job is completed, the Second Job can begin to execute. Unless the previous job is completely executed, the next Job has to wait.
2. Real time processing – This method looks out for immediate response. Example, aeroplane landing control system, interrupt error in computer system, anti-missile defence system.
3. Time Sharing processing – Time slots are allotted to each user to interact with the system. The system decides the size of the time slot.
We often face problems when we install new hardware’s or software’s into our system. To solve this issue, new wizards are implemented which can guide us by giving step by step instructions to perform a function. In future, wizards will be integrated into the operating systems to carry out functions like cleaning the system automatically, deleting unwanted files, etc.
We encounter technical problems when we transfer file between two platforms. In future, this problem will solved and operating system can translate into a configuration supported by a native platform automatically.
Active desktop helps to search hard drives and surf the Net. In future, the HTML with Active X Controls and Java will be the File standards on applications and on the desktop. The graphical User interface will be replaced with the Network User Interface. Without a separate web browser, you can access the web directly from the Operating System.
