Simplistic Questions (Basically I am dumb.)

Just trying to inform myself a bit.Smilie

Some of the info I am looking for is environments its used in, processor family, device control (batch, interactive, real-time) memory management techniques (eg. Involves providing ways to allocate portions of memory to programs at their request, and freeing it for reuse when no longer needed.) file system used and the device management techniques used.

I know how the things work I just do not the more in depth information I guess.

Thanks all.
