The bulk of the SOS code is unchanged from the book but certain changes were necessary because of the change to the MIPS machine and because of the fact that the operating system is not running on the simulator.
We write the operating system on the development system, move the executable code to the target system, and run the operating system directly on the target system.
After the operating system is compiled and loaded on the development system, the executable is loaded into the simulator and run there.

SOS provides support for arbitrary, user-defined, typed objects.
The system implements object migration; this mechanism is generic, but can be tailored to specific object semantics thanks to the prerequisite and upcall concepts.

The operating system used today on the 1100 and 2200 Series is an outgrowth of EXEC 8 which was written for the UNIVAC 1108 in the late 1960s, but EXEC 8 was not the first UNIVAC operating system.
Their GM/NAA I/O System was further developed by the SHARE user group in 1960 as the SHARE Operating System (SOS).
UNIVAC's systems programming group in St. Paul started work on an operating system for the 1107, which eventually became known as EXEC I. It was written in the assembly language (known as SLEUTH) of the 1107, comprised some 25,000 lines of code, and occupied about 8K of the 1107's 32K of memory.

While some operating systems, like the love-hate Unix, have been around since the early days of digital computing (read 1960's), most have appeared in the late 70's to the present time, varying from powerful multiuser OS's to little OS's that ran on 8 bit computers in under 64K of memory.
Its operating system was BASIC, but had a built-in ML monitor and could generate a fl-and-white TV display with its 4K of RAM (max 8K).
