Talk:Nemesis (operating system)
|WikiProject Computing / Software||(Rated Stub-class)|
The following article text:
"In a microkernel environment, an application is typically implemented by a number of processes, most of which are servers performing work on behalf of more than one client. This leads to enormous difficulty in accounting for resource usage. In a kernel-based system, multimedia applications spend most of their time in the kernel, leading to similar problems.
"The guiding principle in the design of Nemesis was to structure the operating system in such a way that the majority of code could execute in the application process itself. Nemesis therefore has an extremely small lightweight kernel, and performs most operating system functions in shared libraries which execute in the user's process. This leads to a vertically-structured operating system."
