  Pick operating system - Definition, explanation
The Pick operating system (often called just "the Pick system" or simply "Pick") is a demand-paged multiuser virtual memory time-sharing operating system based around a unique "multivalued" database.
Pick was originally implemented as the Generalized Information Retrieval Language System (GIRLS) on an IBM System/360 in 1965 by Don Nelson and Richard (Dick) Pick at TRW for use by the U.S. Army to control the inventory of helicopter parts.
Pick was subsequently commercially released in 1973 by Microdata (and their British distributor CMC) as the Reality Operating System.

 Linux and GNU - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)
Linux is normally used in a combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU, with Linux functioning as its kernel.
Some of our system components, the programming tools, became popular on their own among programmers, but we wrote many components that are not tools (2).
A free operating system that exists today is almost certainly either a variant of the GNU system, or a kind of BSD system.

  History of operating systems Summary
To accommodate this evolution of the meaning most of what was the original "operating system" is now called the "kernel", and OS has come to mean the complete package.
Early systems had utilized Microprogramming to implement features on their systems in order to permit different underlying architecture to appear to be the same as others in a series.
The system is an example of a system which started as a database application support program, graduated to system work, and still exists across a wide variety of systems supported on most UNIX systems as an addon database system.

Pick is one of the small army of forgotten operating systems which once held the promise of great things but are now relegated to a minority interest.
Pick, which was originally designed for the minicomputer market, was given a kiss of life in 1986, when IBM announced that a new mainframe, the 9370, also ran Pick and Mumps as well as standard IBM operating systems.
Pick was ported to Microdata machines in 1973, and by 1977 had a near monopoly on the operating system.

 Operating system Summary
Operating systems also have to allocate I/O to processes keeping in mind the limited bandwidth of the channels used; the code used for this can be as complex as the code that is used to schedule CPU time among processes.
Operating systems are a collection of programs designed to permit a computer to manage its own operations, including peripherals (printers and modems), programs, and data.
Mainframe operating systems, such as IBM's z/OS, and embedded operating systems such as VxWorks, eCos, and Palm OS, are usually unrelated to Unix and Windows, except for Windows CE, Windows NT Embedded 4.0 and Windows XP Embedded which are descendants of Windows, and several *BSDs, and Linux distributions tailored for embedded systems.

 The right programming language facilitates equipment upgrade.
Furthermore, it was determined that the system had to include the database characteristic of a file dictionary, so authorized users could access files by using a query oriented language for the purpose of preparing ad hoc reports.
Finally, the system design had to be flexible to accommodate evolution of the HTVRO industry, so that enhancements and changes could be made to the system with minor effort.
Even though the system did not require all capabilities at the time, it was anticipated that other XYZ departments would eventually need access to the wealth of data the system would maintain.

This particular system was to contain three mini-computers linked to a large data acquisition system (supplied by Astrodata Corp in Anaheim) and further linked to a CDC supercomputer (6400).
The final result was that Intertechnique licensed the Pick system from Pick and dropped the Microdata license, Pick established his ownership of the basic technology, Microdata sold itself to McDonnell Douglas and everyone went their separate ways.
Finally, their "soft" operating system could be made to run almost as fast as if the whole thing had been implemented in hardware.

The Irvine, Calif.-based developer of the Pick operating system says his target customer is "the person who runs a company or organization with an iron fist, who wants to run a team the way it's supposed to be run."
Although Pick is pitching his operating system to "dictators," he nonetheless insists that "Users don't have to depend on a DP staff; you throw them in and a large percentage catch on.
He calls the operating system "a tool for running companies," and contrasts the decentralized, PC and LAN approach with his own.

If your system goes down be cause of a power failure, or hangs due to an internal system bug or hardware problem, then it is quite possible that the Monitor has been caught in mid-juggle.
The moral of the story is to avoid a radical system reboot at all costs, especially if the system is in heavy use at the time.

Operating system usefulness should ultimately be determined separately for each task: desktops for administrators, desktops for users, and servers.
In a more general sense, most people will use SSH or a remote desktop to manage a server, which can be done from any operating system.
A given platform's usefulness to an administrator is mostly going to depend on what the administered servers are running, and, of course, that person's level of comfort with the operating system.

The PICK System was originally developed in the 1960's as a relational database for the Department of Defense.
The idea behind open systems is that if all computers can use the same operating system (and attendant items) than one may run one's application software (like RSG's packages), without change, on any computer.
The open systems approach was contrary to the vast majority of computer manufacturers philosophies as they wanted one to use their proprietary operating systems and development software so that leaving the manufacturer (after the hardware and software investment) was extremely difficult and costly.

The Pick operating system, which was originally developed for a stores data management system US military project way back in the mid-1960s, has evolved into a commercial multi-user system - for users as opposed to technicians - with an in-built relational database and English-like enquiry language at its heart.
Although Pick, with its in-built relational database, is ideal for business environments, in the open systems market, applications and operating systems stand or fall on their ability to perform a complete range of computing tasks.
Nevertheless Pick is still important to its users - the report claims that nearly 90% reckoned that the use of Pick had given their business a competitive edge.

Pick/BASIC-like the Pick Operating System itself (for so long, that`s what is was, the Pick Operating System)-is a dynamic living thing (remember the Green and Rainbow manuals?).
The use of a token-based system produced a compiler with two main characteristics: (1) easy addition of new structures to the language, and (2) sometimes cryptic error messages.

Windows systems have traditionally relied on assigning the application type to the filename in the form of the file name extension, the three characters after the dot.
Relying on your own quirky rich file system was fine in the early days of the Mac, when computers were standalone, or only likely to be networked to machines running the same operating system.
A system search engine built on a true database filesystem, like Pick or MUMPS, would be clean and fast on local drives and just wouldn’t work (you wouldn’t expect it to work) on networked drives using a foreign file system.
