I want you to identify the paper that was the best one of the semesters, and
the paper that was the worst one of all these papers below. You should name
each of them, and provide just a couple of sentences describing why you
choose them. Then use the scholarly search tools we listed early in the
semester to find current papers (2020 onward) on the same two general
topics. For example, if one of your choices is the paper that focused on
Multics virtual memory, you probably wouldn’t find much that is current and
specifically references Multics, but you could certainly find papers on some
aspect of virtual memory. So again, find a current paper on each of those two
topics. Then write the usual summary and reaction for each of them with the
headings. (Note: don’t forget which papers you chose for best and worst.)
