Dedicated operating system for a device.

From Computer Science Wiki
Resource Management[1]

Dedicated operating systems are designed to be used in specific systems. They are designed to operate on small machines like phones, PDAs with less autonomy. They are able to operate with a limited number of resources. They are very compact and extremely efficient by design. iOS, RasberryPi, and Minix 3 are some examples of dedicated operating systems

Advantages of dedicated operating systems[edit]

Advantages Notes
Size The operating system does not need to be all things for all users, and can be optimized for it's task
Speed Because it is optimized for a specific range of hardware
Customization The OS can work do one thing really well, rather than 20 things fairly well
Security The OS prevents and controls access, input and output
