  1. 1. CHAPTER 5 Discovering Computers Fundamentals, 2011 Edition Living in a Digital World
  2. 2. Objectives Overview Define system software and identify the two types of system software Describe the functions of an operating system Summarize the features of several stand-alone operating systems Identify various server operating systems Briefly describe several embedded operating systems Explain the purpose of several utility programs 2
  3. 3. TYPES OF COMPUTER SOFTWARE • Computer software can be divided to two types depends on the functions use. The two major types are: – System Software - System software consists of the program that control or maintain the operations of the computer and the computer’s hardware – Application software - Programs designed to make users more productive and/or assist them with personal tasks 3
  4. 4. System Software • System software consists of the programs that control or maintain the operations of the computer and its devices Operating systems Utility Programs 4
  5. 5. Operating Systems • An operating system (OS) is a set of programs containing instructions that work together to coordinate all the activities among computer hardware resources Start and shut down a computer Provide a user interface Manage programs Manage memory Coordinate tasks Configure devices Establish an Internet connection Monitor performance Provide utilities Automatically update Control a network Administer security 5
  6. 6. Operating Systems • Characteristics of operating systems: Device –dependent: run only on specific type of computer Proprietary software: privately owned and limited to specific vendor or computer model Downward compatible: works with application software written for earlier version of OS Deviceindependent: run on many manufactures’ computers. Upward compatible: runs on new versions of OS 6
