Modern OS survey is presented. .
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
To obtain profound knowledge about computer operating systems (OS) foundations with concentration on OS principles that are common for different OS. OS play essential role in ensuring the functionality of computer systems, and therefore the most important tasks are: to give notions about OS structure, OS important components and their functionality principles, to understand OS main subsystems working - processes, memory, input/output and file management.
