What is an OS?
It's the first letters of Operating System and
it's the main thinking brain of the computer. It's in charge of
what the software does on the computer.
Windows 7, Mac OS-10.8, Linux, etc, are all Operating
"OS" Stands for Operating System. And Operating system is
considered one of the 3 types of software. An OS takes the
"hardware" or computer parts inside your computer, and puts them to
good Use. Without your OS, your Computer would be a Large
Paper-weight. The OS is Virtual, it isn't something you can hold or
see ( except on your screen of course (: ) . The OS is stored in
the Hard drive inside your computer. Your hard drive also holds all
your other files, like your programs, pictures, and music, etc.
