Overview

An operating system – commonly referred to as an OS – is a set of computer programs that manage the hardware and software resources of a computer. The OS processes electronic devices with a rational response to commands that are approved by the system. The operating system is the most important program that runs on a computer. Without an operating system, your computer would not work. It would not be able to process requests for print, simple calculations, or any other function. It is really the brain that runs the equipment. Learn more how operating systems run the computers. Discover more operating systems for your home computers.
