    • Operating Systems
      An operating system (OS) is the software program that is installed in computers, cell phones, game consoles and web servers. The OS manages the hardware of the computer and allows the computer to act in predictable ways.
    • Types of Operating Systems
      This list represents some of the more common operating systems. This list can be separated into categories based on their design. Some OS can be placed in more than one category.
      Linux / Variants
      MacOSMS-DOS
      IBM OS/2 Warp
      Unix / Variants
      Windows CE
      Windows 3.x
      Windows 95
      Windows 98
      Windows 98 SE
      Windows ME
      Windows NT
      Windows 2000
      Windows XP
      Windows Vista
      Windows 7
    • Graphic User Interface (GUI)
      This OS commonly uses a mouse for navigation and uses windows, icons and menus to carry out commands. It was developed in 1981 by Alan Kay and Douglas Engelbart, researchers working at Xerox PARC.

    • Multi-User
      A multi-user operating system allows for multiple users at once or at different times.
      Common Multi-User Operating Systems
      Linux
      Unix
      Windows
    • Multiprocessing
      This operating system is able to support and utilize more than one computer processor.
      Common Multiprocessing Operating Systems
      Linux
      Unix
      Windows
    • Multitasking
      Multitasking is the ability to run several software programs simultaneously.

    • Computer Basics
      Computers are more than just operating systems.
      Computers need hardware, software and peripherals to operate properly.
    • Computer Hardware
      Hardware of a modern Personal Computer.
      1. Monitor
      2. Motherboard
      3. CPU
      4. RAM
      5. Expansion cards
      6. Power supply
      7. Optical disc drive
      8. Hard disk drive
      9. Keyboard
      10. Mouse
    • Computer Software
      Software programs contain data that provide directions for your computer. Software tells your computer how to act.
    • Computer Peripherals
      Computer peripherals are devices attached to a computer but are not part of it.
      Examples of Peripherals:
      • Speakers
      • Printers
      • Scanners
      • Webcams
      • Digital Cameras
    • File Management System
      The internet is an endless flow of information. There is a constant inflow and outflow of data. It is important to stay organized to stay productive.
      Microsoft offers five tips for effective file management:
      Organize folders
      Clean up your hard disk
      Use System Restore
      Keep Windows and Microsoft Office up to date.
      Run antivirus software.
    • Networks
      A computer network consists of three parts:
      • Clients
      • Infrastructure
      • Networking Electronics
      Computer networks come in all sizes and are commonly referred to as LAN and WAN.
    • Clients
      The term clients in a computer network refers to the user workstations and the peripherals
    • Infrastructure
      This term refers to the fiber optics and wires that all of the data being transmitted travels through.
    • Networking Electronics
      This includes:
      • Fiber Optic Media Converters
      • Audio Video Devices
      • USB Devices
      • Fiber Switches
      • Transceivers
      • Power Products
      • and more
    • Local Area Network (LAN)
      In a LAN, clients share the same infrastructure. They are typically located in the same building or group of buildings.
    • Wide Area Network (WAN)
      A WAN usually consists of two or more LAN’s and covers a larger geographic area.
