(A3) Time Sharing Systems

The main idea of time sharing systems is to allow a large number of users to interact with a single computer(system) concurrently.

Hence, it extended the idea of multiprogramming to allow multiple terminals with each-in-use terminal to be associated with one or more jobs.

Hence, the there are spaces for more than one user, each associated with a program or more.

The main objective of these systems is to minimize the response time to user commands.
