    TSR's are only necessary in single-tasking OSes (read DOS). They provide a basic level of multitasking to an otherwise single-tasking OS. There is no necessity for TSR in an multitasking OS. However, I believe you have some other idea connected to the idea of TSR (for example, a TSR that provides library routines to any program that's running, or an interrupt handler). In which case, these ideas are definitely implementable in a multitasking OS. I suggest that you be more specific about what you are thinking/planning, and we can suggest how you might go about doing it, for example, to provide library routines you'd use a DLL.
