Question description

Discover and Practice how to manage process running in a Linux environment.  For this assignment you will need to obtain a copy of a Linux distribution.  There are several popular distributions that are freely available from sites such as Linux.com.  Your objective is to:

A. Determine the processes that are running,

B. How to start a new process and assign it a priority,

C. How to change the priority of a process that is currently running.

Students need to include screen shots of their systems in respect to A, B and C and include a brief summary for each task.

Also, discuss the scheduling algorithm used in the Linux operating system.  In a separate section, do some research on the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system, specifically on:

A. How to determine the processes that are running,

B. How to start a new process and assign it a priority, 

C. How to change the priority of a process that is currently running.  Provide a 2 to 3 paragraph summary of you findings, including a few illustrations if they provide added value to your summarization. Also discuss the scheduling algorithm used in the Windows operating system. 

Be sure to proof and edit your work before submitting. Always cite your source using APA guidelines.
