Running Head: OPERATING SYSTEM
The operating system performs an important function in computers and specialized
computing devices. They provide an interface in which users interact with the computer
hardware. The OS acts as a bridge between the computer and the users. Important computer
resources are assigned by the OS such as file management, device management, memory
management, security, error detecting, job accounting, system control and interfacing with
other software and users (Burd, 2014, p. 393). There are many popular OS’s available both
commercial and open source for users; they include windows, Linux OS Firefox, and
Android among others. The computer works efficiently and effectively with the OS.
Device management is a major function of the operating system. All computing
device requires connection with input and output devices such as a keyboard, printer, mouse,
and monitor. The OS provides for a uniform platform where all the devices, with different
physical characteristics, can work together to perform the intended functions. OS checks the
status of input and output device such as identifying ready state device. The operating system
manages how resources are allocated and the deallocating of the resources.
The operating system provides an interface between the computer software and
computer hardware. It offers a platform where users or user program can be installed to
interact with other computer hardware such as basic input and output, and other resources
such as timers and memory in the computer. It has device drivers the ensure that all the
hardware is in control and accessible by other computer processes or users. Device drivers
deal with the data transfer in computer devices (English, 2015, p. 231).
