Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 143)


An attempt has been made to classify various aspects of the OS interface, to review evolutionary changes in each aspect, and to project the future.

The advancement of the OS, the changes in its environment, and the future of the OS with particular emphasis on end-user orientation are briefly covered.

The author predicts that low-cost, colour/graphics displays with both interactive dialogues and procedural command languages, supported by a powerful full-screen editor and a library management facility will become prevalent in the future.
