This ends our journey through half a century of operating systems development. The first 50 years of operating systems led to the discovery of fundamental concepts of hierarchical software design, concurrent programming, graphic user interfaces, file systems, personal computing, and distributed systems. The history of operating systems illustrates an eternal truth about human nature: we just can't resist the temptation to do the impossible. This is as true today as it was 30 years ago, when David Howarth (1972b) wrote: Our problem is that we never do the same thing again.

No provision is made for changing the classification of a tape at execution time except for the speci al case of output files. Any library or input file tape required for several jobs is retained by the system and released only when no further job calls for the specific tape. However, an output file tape may not be used by more than one job nor may it be used as an immediate input file. All input is collected or batched and an input tape is prepared periodically with the off-line card-to-tape equipment.
