Operating Systems

  1. 1. OPERATING SYSTEM COMPUTER PROJECT
  2. 2. OPERATING SYSTEM An operating system (OS) is a interface between the user and system, collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs. The operating system is a vital component of the system software in a computer system. Application programs usually require an operating system to function.
  3. 3. SOME EXAMPLES OF OPERATING SYSTEM
  4. 4. WINDOWS 8
  5. 5. INTRODUCTION
  6. 6. Windows 8 is a version of Microsoft Windows (an operating system developed by Microsoft) for use on personal computers, including home and business desktops, laptops, tablets, and home theatre PCs Development of Windows 8 started before the release of its predecessor, Windows 7, in 2009.
  7. 7. Its existence was first announced at CES 2011, and followed by the release of three pre-release versions from September 2011 to May 2012. The operating system was released to manufacturing on August 1, 2012, and was released for general availability on October 26, 2012. Windows 8 uses version 6.2 of the Windows NT kernel.
  8. 8. FEATURES
  9. 9. New features and functionality in Windows 8 include a faster start-up through UEFI integration and the new "Hybrid Boot" mode (which hibernates the Windows kernel on shutdown to speed up the subsequent boot), a new lock screen with a clock and notifications.
  10. 10. Windows 8 also adds native support for USB 3.0 devices, which allow for faster data transfers and improved power management with compatible devices, and hard disk 4Kn Advanced Format support, as well as support for near field communication to facilitate sharing and communication between devices.

BOSS GNU/Linux is also known by the acronym BOSS. The latest version of this operating system, BOSS GNU/Linux
  14. 14. This software package has been described as "India's own PC operating system" the most meaningful product to come out of the Indian software industry in decades — and a work that a government department had done.

  18. 18. APPLE MACINTOSH
  19. 19. INTRODUCTION
  20. 20. The Macintosh marketed as Mac, is a line of personal computers (PCs) designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. It is targeted mainly at the home, education, and creative professional markets, and includes the descendants of the original iMac, the entry-level Mac mini desktop model, the Mac Pro tower graphics workstation, and the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops. Its Xserve server was discontinued on January 31, 2011.
  21. 21. Apple Inc.'s then-chairman Steve Jobs introduced the first Macintosh on January 24, 1984. It became the first commercially successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface, rather than a command-line interface. Current Mac CPUs use Intel's X86-64 architecture. The earliest models (1984–1994) used Motorola's 68k, and models from 1994
  22. 22. Apple also develops the operating system for the Mac, OS X, currently on version 10.8 "Mountain Lion". The modern Mac, like other personal computers, is capable of running alternative operating systems such as Linux, FreeBSD, and, in the case of Intel-based Macs, Microsoft Windows. However, Apple does not license OS X for use on non-Apple computers.
  23. 23. HISTORY
  24. 24. The Macintosh project began in the late 1970s with Jef Raskin, an Apple employee who envisioned an easy-to-use, low-cost computer for the average consumer. He wanted to name the computer after his favourite type of apple, the McIntosh, but the name had to be changed for legal reasons as it was too close, phonetically, to that of the McIntosh audio
  25. 25. Steve Jobs requested a release of the name so that Apple could use it, but was denied, forcing Apple to eventually buy the rights to use the name. Smith's first Macintosh board was built to Ruskin's design specifications: it had 64 kilobytes (kb) of RAM, used the Motorola 6809E microprocessor, and was capable of supporting a 256×256- pixel black-and-white bitmap display.
  26. 26. By December 1980, Smith had succeeded in designing a board that not only used the 68000, but increased its speed from 5 MHz to 8 MHz; this board also had the capacity to support a 384×256-pixel display. The Macintosh 128K was manufactured at an Apple plant in Fremont, California. The Macintosh 128K was announced to the press in October 1983, followed by an 18- page brochure included with various
  27. 27. SUN SOLARIS
  28. 28. INTRODUCTION
  29. 29. Solaris is a Unix operating system originally developed by Sun Microsystems. It superseded their earlier SunOS in 1993. Oracle Solaris, as it is now known, has been owned by Oracle Corporation since Oracle's acquisition of Sun in January 2010. Solaris is known for its scalability, especially on SPARC systems, and for originating many innovative features such as DTrace, ZFS and Time Slider.
  30. 30. Solaris was historically developed as proprietary software, then in June 2005 Sun Microsystems released most of the codebase under the CDDL license, and founded the Open Solaris open source project
  31. 31. INSTALLATION
  32. 32. Solaris can be installed from various pre- packaged software groups, ranging from a minimalistic "Reduced Network Support" to a complete "Entire Plus OEM". Installation of Solaris is not necessary for an individual to use the system. Additional software, like Apache, MySQL, etc. can be installed as well in a packaged form from sunfreeware, Open
  33. 33. Solaris can be installed from physical media or a network for use on a desktop or server. Solaris can be interactively installed from a text console on platforms without a video display and mouse. This may be selected for servers, in a rack, in a remote data center, from a terminal server or even dial up modem.
  34. 34. Solaris can be interactively installed from a graphical console. This may be selected for personal workstations or laptops, in a local area, where a console may normally be used.
