Operating System

In this section of our dictionary, we are gathering terms related to operating systems. In general, an OS is a set of governing programs that provide control over the operation of the computer and its interaction with the user.

From the outset, an operating system serves as an intermediary between a person and the computer. It allows a user to run programs, transfer and receive all kinds of data, manage the work of programs, change the parameters and connected devices, redistribute resources, and much more.

When working with a computer, you are working with its operating system. If you install the operating system (OS) on your PC, you’ll need to use the command line to communicate with it.

The operating system solves problems that can be conditionally divided into two categories:

  • Management of all computer resources;
  • Data exchange between the computer components and external gadgets, like printer, router, and scanner etc.

The OS also provides the ability to personalize computer settings by providing selective access to certain resources for authorized users. Furthermore it can enable restrictions, so that a guest may not be able to make advanced changes in the core of system.

If there are any terms we haven’t highlighted yet, please, let us know on  marketing@magora-systems.com and we’ll add the definitions in the very near future.
