The operating system serves as an interface between hardware and applications. It abstracts the details related to CPU scheduling, memory management, and responding to hardware interrupts during input and output.
Create a diagram that associates the hardware components described in your text in Computer Hardware Review, Section 1.3 (CPU, Memory and Disks) with its associated operating system abstraction described in Operating System Concepts, Section 1.5 (Processes, Memory, and Files). Add notes to explain your diagram. Possible programs for creating your diagram include PowerPoint, Visio, and bubbl.us.
For additional details, please refer to the Module One Diagram Guidelines and Rubric document in the Assignment Guidelines and Rubrics section of the course.
