Evolution of Computer Operating System
For week 3 assignment, I have been assign to read an article and make some mind maps about the topic of Evolution of Computer Operating System. I have chosen an article ‘ Evolution of Operating System’ from book of Sibsankar Haldar and Alex A. Haravind titled operating system. Basically, operating system is a system software that works by executing program. It controls the shutting down or starting of computer, managing memory, monitoring performance and so on. However, before the computer have all this accomodities, it had gone through an evolution or phase where lot of changes are made to ease the users by the development of technology and achieving new expectations. There are 8 evolution of operating system including the first without one.
Here is the link of my mindmap.
For week 4 assignment, I have to provide information about the source of the article.

Since the article are quite hard to understand due to certain terms, I have hard time doing the flow chart and summarizing the article. However I tried my best and I’ve posted the result of my work as attachment. I did the chart in words because it’s easier to do it there. I divide the stages into 8 including the first one which is without the operating system and do the reason of the evolution of each stage at the arrow. I hope it is understandable and acceptable. This assignments are quite hard yet interesting to do. Because of this, I manage to learn how to use google scholar and google books which I never tried before. I hope the next assignments will be as interesting and more enjoyable as this.
