Operating System
  1. If an operating system does all the things we know it does, it seems downright impossible for a computer to exist without one.
    1. Operating System, what does it do? An operating system is the most important software that runs on a computer. It manages the computer's memory, processes, and all of its software and hardware. It also allows you to communicate with the computer without knowing how to speak the computer's language. Without an operating system, a computer is useless.
      1. Multitasking provides process and memory management services that allow two or more tasks, jobs, or programs to run simultaneously
        1. Most operating systems have a graphical user interface, i.e. instead of writing commands their use is based on managing graphical objects (such as icons) with the help of e.g. a mouse. The basic principle of GUIs is generally the same overall, so by knowing how to use a Windows UI, you will most likely be able to use Linux, as well.
