• How each OS solves the problems related to these fields

can run several programs at once” but what the quantum length and scheduling

been implemented in the way it has.
Note the following:
• Even within the word limit, it is possible to lose marks for excessive verbiage that
does not convey useful information
• Your research should be based on technical documentation rather than sales
material or other commentary. Both Microsoft and Apple make their developer
documentation freely available online.
• Keep a record of the sources you use and cite them in your essay
• Do not attempt to argue that either OS is objectively better than the other
The marking scheme is as follows:
• Technical description of how the features of operating systems work: 10% of module
• Discussion of benefits and reasoning behind the differences: 10% of module mark
• Good use of citations: 10% of module mark
