Operating System

In the TUNES project, the term for any common cultural background between different computers.

In the false-hearted paradigm imposed by computer industry, an arbitrarily delimited part of a computing system that only deals with limited, first-order, low-level services while inducing severe "context-switch" overhead for every single operation.

See the Operating Systems reviewed for examples.
