  Graphical Kernel System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Graphical Kernel System (GKS) was the first ISO standard for low level computer graphics, introduced in 1977.
GKS provides a set of low-level drawing features for two-dimensional line and vector graphics.
The calls are designed to be portable across different programming languages, graphics devices and uses, so that applications written to use GKS will be readily portable to many platforms and devices.

 CGRM_IS
Graphical output is generated by traversal, and display of graphics on a workstation is initiated by posting structures to a workstation.
In each of these cases, the graphical operations that produce the content of these windows are conceptually requested by the associated application which usually delegates some or all of the work to the relevant graphics system.
In the manipulation process of the windowing sub-environment, the window system identifies the client associated with the input data and creates input tokens which are sent to the logical environment of the computer graphics system which requests the input.

 OPERATING SYSTEM - Definition
The OS may be split into a kernel which is always present and various system programs which use facilities provided by the kernel to perform higher-level house-keeping tasks, often acting as servers in a client-server relationship.
The operating system loader, BIOS, or other firmware required at boot time or when installing the operating system would generally not be considered part of the operating system, though this distinction is unclear in the case of a rommable operating system such as RISC OS.
The facilities an operating system provides and its general design philosophy exert an extremely strong influence on programming style and on the technical cultures that grow up around the machines on which it runs.

A graphic workstation is very similar to a CAD workstation and, given the typical specifications of personal computers currently available in 1999, the distinctions are very blurred and are more likely to depend on availability of specific software than any detailed hardware requirements.

An operating system can also contain compilers and their corresponding libraries (GCC and the C library in particular under Linux), although not all programming languages need be part of the operating system.
Most operating systems have their own, and it can be a good idea to use each operating system's own, just in case it does something unusual that the others can't.

 What is GKS (the Graphical Kernel System)
The Graphical Kernel System (GKS) [2] is a document produced by the International Standards Organization (ISO) which defines a common interface to interactive computer graphics for application programs.
The reason input level 'c' is not usually supported is that it requires asynchronous input facilities not found in all operating systems.
The Graphical Kernel System for two dimensional graphics was adopted as an ISO standard in 1985, and since that date work has been in progress to define a three dimensional super-set [3] which was accepted as an International Standard during 1988.

It is possible for a DOS/Windows system using IDE hard drive(s) and CD ROM to be functional even with the master/slave jumpers on the drives incorrectly set.
Nowadays there are partitioning utilities that can resize non-destructively; they know about the structure of file systems, can find the free space on a file system, and can move file data around on the partition to move free space where it needs to be in order for a resize to work properly.
What's actually happening here is this: the boot disk provides a miniature operating system which (because the hard drive isn't prepared) uses a portion of your RAM as a virtual disk (called, logically enough, a `ramdisk').
