 Time-sharing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Time sharing is what allows multiple users simultaneous access to a single computer system through remote terminals through which they give input and receive output to the computer.
Time Sharing system is a type of Multi-Tasking Operating Systems which operates in an interactive mode with a quick response time.
And remember all this is possible with “backwards” time sharing, as now there is one problem being run on many smaller computers instead of the traditional implementation of several problems simultaneously run on one central system.

 Time Shares
THE TIME PERIOD: Time-sharing is sold either as fixed time--that is, the same time period each year--or as floating time, in which the length of time stays the same but specific periods are allocated by some form of reservation system.

Responsible people in the industry, however, DO NOT promote or sell time-sharing as an investment because time-share units are usually difficult to rent or resell.

 An Experimental Time-Sharing System
The basic technique for a time-sharing system is to have many persons simultaneously using the computer through typewriter consoles with a time-sharing supervisor program sequentially running each user program in a short burst or quantum of computation.
Ordinarily the time of a quantum, being the basic time unit, should be as small as possible without excessive overhead losses when the supervisor switches from one program in high-speed memory to another.
The response time for programs of equal size, entering the system at the same time, and being run for multiple quanta, is no worse than approximately twice the response-time occurring in a single quanta round-robin procedure.
