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:

    Such is the remorseless progression of human society, shedding lives and souls as it goes on its way. It is an ocean into which men sink who have been cast out by the law and consigned, with help most cruelly withheld, to moral death. The sea is the pitiless social darkness into which the penal system casts those it has condemned, an unfathomable waste of misery. The human soul, lost in those depths, may become a corpse. Who shall revive it?
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    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)
