  V (operating system) - Definition, explanation
The V operating system (sometimes written V-System) is a microkernel operating system that was developed by faculty and students in the Distributed Systems Group at Stanford University in the 1980s, led primarily by Prof.
V was the successor to the Thoth and Verax operating systems that Cheriton had worked on previously.
V was never an end in itself for Cheriton's group; rather, it was used as a vehicle for many different research projects in distributed operating systems and networking.

 Debian -- The Universal Operating System
Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer.
An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run.
Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the name GNU/Linux.

 GNU Emacs - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)
There is code to support some older machine types that run special operating systems developed by the computer manufacturer (often a variant of Unix); however, in many cases we don't know whether they still work.
The definitive reference for this is the MACHINES file, which is also distributed with GNU Emacs; this file also lists the special requirements for compiling GNU Emacs on these systems.
The original Emacs implementation was written for the Incompatible Timesharing System (ITS) as a collection of TECO macros for ITS TECO.

  Cromemco's System 100 and System 300 computers
UNIX System V is the standard for the new generation of high-performance microcomputers and is installed on all CS-100 and CS-300 systems.
Cromemco's proprietary operating system, CROMIX, is also included on all systems for those users with dedicated application programs and to enable our current system users to transport their existing software to the new systems.
In brief, the System 100 and System 300 computers are fully supported by programming and applications software, and the broad line of software for the UNIX operating systems is expanding every day, so you can depend on an even larger base of software in the future.

MPE V/E Operating System Review Following was contributed to AuditNet LLC by (Rey LeClerc) rey.leclerc@case.edu General Description The MPE V/E operating system is the operating system which is used in the HP 3000 environment.
System security is provided by security features built into MPE V/E, by the ways in which the account structure of the system is organized, and the roles various types of users play.
Limiting the number of jobs and sessions prevents degradation of system performance due to excessive system loading, and it helps the System Operator track user activity because less activity is easier to monitor.

 System V Definition
System V was a milestone version of the UNIX operating system that was first released in 1983.
System V also included support for the VAX, a high performance, 32-bit computer that was developed by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) in the mid-1970s.
Although System V and BSD UNIX have traditionally been considered the two major branches of Unix-like operating systems, this classification has been becoming less relevant with the advent of Unix-like systems that are derived from neither source code base, such as Linux and QNX.

Because UNIX operating systems support multiple users and multiple tasks simultaneously, conflicts can arise if more than one user or task tries to send output to a device at the same time.
Refer to the documentation for your operating system for the location of the directory where interface programs are stored under your operating system.
Separate examples are provided for the Ultrix operating system and for other operating systems derived from BSD UNIX (for example, SunOS 4.1.x operating systems) because the entries for the different operating systems support slightly different sets of features.

 What is operating system? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: OS
- An operating system (sometimes abbreviated as "OS") is the program that, after being initially loaded into the computer by a boot program, manages all the other programs in a computer.
In a multitasking operating system where multiple programs can be running at the same time, the operating system determines which applications should run in what order and how much time should be allowed for each application before giving another application a turn.
It sends messages to each application or interactive user (or to a system operator) about the status of operation and any errors that may have occurred.

A basic MK V SOC operating system, also referred to as an operational detachment, is comprised of two craft, two transporters, two prime movers, two five man crews, an eight-man maintenance support team and one deployment support package.
A MK V SOC detachment is deployable on two USAF C-5 aircraft to a theater of operations within 48 hours of notification and is prepared to commence day/night special operations in support of a fleet, joint, or combined task force commander within 24 hours after arriving at a forward staging location (host port facility).

 X Window System Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: )
X terminals are usually connected to a server whose operating system is a Unix- or Linux-based system.
The communication protocol between server and client operates network-transparently: the client and server may run on the same machine or on different ones, possibly with different architectures and operating systems, but they run the same in either case.
In the early days, this gave a significant performance penalty on a standalone system compared to then-current versions of Microsoft Windows or Mac OS, which embedded windowing deep in the operating system.

HP has shelved plans, publicized when OSF/1 was introduced in late 1990, to add that as a second Unix operating system alongside its HP/UX V.3 derivative.
DEC is not alone in using the OSF kernel; IBM's mainframe unit detailed an OSF/1-based version of the company's AIX operating system just this month (EN, April 6), and Intel and Kendall Square Research are both employing it in massively parallel machines.
Meanwhile, he added that DEC expects a larger OEM channel to open up for operating systems in the next few years and hopes its early focus on OSF/1 would give it a lead in capturing such business.

 SANTA CRUZ BEGINS SHIPMENTS OF XENIX 386SYSTEM V, PROMISES MULTIVIEW AND VP/IX - Computer Business Review   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Santa Cruz Operation has begun shipments of the SCO Xenix 386 System V operating system and the SCO Xenix 386 System V development system for 80386-based, AT-compatible personal computers to its OEM and value-added reseller customers.
Santa Cruz says that Xenix System V has an installed base of over 200,000 machines, and reckons that it accounts for a greater market share than all other Unix systems combined.
The 32-bit native-mode code used in the Xenix 386 and generated by the development system is claimed to give "dramatic" performance gains when optimised using the Microsoft C Compiler release 5.0 - "some large 286 programs have run more than 100% faster, simply by recompiling them with the new compiler" it declares.

 Sun Operating System: abour sun os
While Sun OS was being improved upon, AT&T came out with a new flavor of UNIX called System V. In the early 90s, Sun made the switch and Sun OS is no longer a BSD version of UNIX, but rather a System V release.
The main advantage of a UNIX operating system over another OS such as Mac OS, or Windows is that UNIX has been around for a lot longer.

Older then Atari itself, Unix is a very powerful open operating system used widely in most academic, research and corporate institutions.
However, even after the TT030 was finished and the new operating system was complete, Atari backed out of the chance to enter the workstation market feeling it just didn't have the creditials to compete with the big boys, so Unix was made available, but it was never pushed or advertised by the company.
However, other companies saw the Atari platform as a viable and useful system for their flavors of Unix, so LINUX a Unix clone was made for the Atari's and so was BSD/ATARI Unix as well.
