MINIMOP was an operating system which ran on the International Computers Limited (ICL) 1900 series of computers. MINIMOP provided an on-line, time-sharing environment (Multiple Online Programming, or MOP in ICL terminology). Batch facilities could be provided by simultaneously running George 2 on the same machine. MINIMOP was named to reflect its role as an alternative to the MOP facilities of George 3, which required a more powerful machine.

Queen Mary College, London, now Queen Mary, University of London, later developed MAXIMOP,[1] an improved system largely compatible with MINIMOP.
