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
|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|
