Operating System Concepts by A. Silberschatz et al. I'm trying to understand what is Dual-mode operation of an operating system.
It states in page 22 that:
Initial control resides in the operating system, where instructions are executed in kernel mode. When control is given to a user application, the mode is set to user mode...
What is meant by
control here --- in Layman’s terms?
When you say control is given to a user application, does that just mean the user application gets cpu time?
