Mobile Operating System (MOS; Russian: Моби́льная Операцио́нная Систе́ма (МОС)) is an operating system, a Soviet clone of Unix from the 1980s.[1]

Overview[edit]

This operating system was commonly found on SM EVM minicomputers; it was also ported to ES EVM and Elbrus. MOS was also used in high-end PDP-11 clones.

There have been several modifications of MOS named MNOS, DEMOS, INMOS [ru], etc.
