Introduction to Linux/Unix-I
Here we will see what these basic terms of Linux/Unix mean to us
Multi-user operating systems allow multiple users to
utilise the computer and run programs at the same time. All
are multi-user systems, but most batch processing systems for
mainframes were too, to avoid leaving the expensive CPU idle while it
waited for I/O operations to complete.
The most obvious example is a Unix server where multiple
remote users have access (via
Telnet) to the Unix shell prompt at
the same time.
