Topic: Computerized Operating Systems (OS) are almost everywhere. We encounter them when we use our laptop or desktop computer. We use them when we use our phone or tablet. Find articles that describe the different types of operating systems (Linux, Unix, Android, ROS, z/OS, z/VM, z/VSE, etc). Do not select MS WINDOWS. Write a scholarly review of comparing any two or more OS; attach a copy of the article to your postings. Remember, this assignment is to be scholarly; it is not enough for you to simply post your article and add cursory reviews. Cited references are required. In addition, you must read the postings of the other students and comment significantly on those areas. Please see Discussion Forum of the class syllabus for additional details on content.

The primary goal for the discussion forum assignment is to simulate the free sharing of ideas among peers that are typically experienced in graduate courses delivered in the more traditional, face-to-face environment. Evaluating a student’s performance on the assignment is not, therefore, very concrete. There are a number of factors that impact the quality of a student’s participation. The content of the contributions is, of course, one rather obvious factor, but the context in which the contributions have been made is equally important. In evaluating performance on this assignment, the following factors will be considered: Add value to the content of the discussion by posting well-written, on-topic contributions. Share resources with others by providing support for your contributions in the form of citations from the literature. Promote peer-to-peer discourse by initiating one quality major topic of discussion and actively participating throughout the period of the forum with at least 4 quality engagement postings. Responses should follow student’s major topics of discussion thread – responding to postings of others in a timely manner (within 72 hours). Each contribution (threads and replies) is expected to be thought-provoking and critical (i.e. “While a database is sometimes considered to consist of a large single site repository, researchers have suggested…” and not simplistic (i.e. “Yes, I agree” or “Thanks for …”). Please see the class syllabus for specific grading details. No attachments, please.

The initial post should be a minimum of 500 words, and each response should be 150 words each.

Please note that the syllabus states that 3 responses are needed but you need four. 

Initial discussion post is worth 300 points,
