Conversational Monitor System

The Conversational Monitor System (CMS; originally: "Cambridge Monitor System") is a relatively simple interactive computing single-user operating system.

  • CMS is part of IBM's VM family, which runs on IBM mainframe computers. VM was first announced in 1972, and is still in use today (cf. z/VM).
  • CMS was originally developed as part of IBM's CP/CMS operating system, which went into production use in 1967.

CMS runs as a "guest" operating system in a private virtual machine created by the VM control program. The control program plus CMS together create a multi-user time-sharing operating system.

Famous quotes containing the words system and/or monitor:

    If mothers are to be successful in achieving their child-rearing goals, they must have the inner freedom to find their own value system and within that system to find what is acceptable to them and what is not. This means leaving behind the anxiety, but also the security, of simplistic good-bad formulations and deciding for themselves what they want to teach their children.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    It is indeed typical that you Earth people refuse to believe in the superiority of any world but your own. Children looking into a magnifying glass, imagining the image you see is the image of your true size.
    —Franklin Coen. Joseph Newman. The Monitor (Douglas Spencer)
